Trains running again after Chelsfield landslip

This Is Local London: Trains are unable to reach Chelsfield, Knockholt or Dunton Green from London Trains are unable to reach Chelsfield, Knockholt or Dunton Green from London

TRAINS heading south between Orpington and Sevenoaks are running again after a landslip at Chelsfield.

The incident occurred around 3pm this afternoon and soon after Southeastern announced on Twitter passengers travelling from London should take an alternative route.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "A train driver reported seeing earth moving on the side of the track there at 3.05pm.

"We sent an engineer down on site. We have had to close one of the two lines at Chelsfield. The rest of the team is en route."

The disruptions came after a number of trains across the country have been cancelled or delayed this week following heavy rain and high winds.

When will Network Rail learn that cutting down trees to stop leaves on the line is counter-productive ?

The answer to the above question is never. They are already planning a big cut down of trees going into London. They don't like clearing leaves off the line. Obviously are in league with the graffiti artists and want more concrete.
