Ely-Peterborough shut "for a few days". - Posted: August 15, 2017 - 12:58 PM Quote and reply
An incident occurred at approximately 14:40 on Monday 14 August, when 11 wagons of a 33 wagon freight train travelling north of Ely derailed.
Network Rail engineers are on site working to recover the derailed wagons, which is likely to take a number of days as they will require to be lifted away by crane. The track is also damaged and will need to be replaced before services can run again. Further updates and timescales will be released over the next few days.
