Disruption to train services in and out of London Paddington continued overnight with many passengers stranded in Reading following the Queen’s funeral.
That’s according to an article on the ITV website that says the problems were expected to continue until midday today, National Rail said.
No trains have been able to enter or leave the west London station since 6.30am on Monday because of damage to overhead electric wires near Hayes and Harlington station.
Local people in Leven and Cameron Bridge will get the first chance to see the plans for the station developments that will be delivered as part of the Levenmouth Rail link project.
Network Rail will unveil the final plans for the new stations at two drop-in events next month to be held near to the proposed station sites and local people are invited to come along and see the plans – ahead of them being submitted as planning applications to Fife Council.
Alstom has demonstrated the effectiveness of its hydrogen powered solutions for long distance transportation.
During a long-distance journey, an unmodified serially-produced Coradia iLint train covered 730 miles without refuelling the hydrogen tank, only emitting water and operating with very low levels of noise.
The train used for this journey comes from the fleet belonging to LNVG, the transport authority of Lower Saxony, Germany.
Finally, InnoTrans has opened its doors for 13th time. Taking place until Friday, the international trade fair for transport technology features 2,834 exhibitors representing 56 countries.
The trade fair had to be postponed twice.
Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin, who was due to open the event, said: “Nothing comes close to meeting in person, seeing old friends again and making new contacts on the stands and at the many specialist events that accompany the trade fair.”
