Disruption to Salisbury train services continue, due to signalling problems and repairs to the railway in the area.

According to South Western Railway, there is currently a track circuit failure between Yeovil Junction and Crewkerne, on the line east of Salisbury.

A spokesperson said that the company has had to replace a cable, which may have some impact on services through Salisbury.

The 15:38 Basingstoke to Salisbury service will now be cancelled - South Western Railway (SWR) says this is due to "a signalling problem".

The 21:49 Salisbury to Reading and the 22:45 Salisbury to Romsey train will be cancelled, due to "urgent repairs to the railway".

The 23:40 London Waterloo to Salisbury service will no longer call at Salisbury - it will divert from Basingstoke and terminate at Southampton Central.

This is also due to urgent repairs to the railway.

Yesterday (Wednesday, November 17), trains were running at reduced speeds due to "autumn leaf fall conditions", according to National Rail and South Western Rail.

The industry introduced temporary speed restrictions in the area as a precaution, after reports of low adhesion on the tracks, associated with autumn leaf fall conditions.

This was only a day after the tracks reopened following the Salisbury train collision, and low adhesion has been linked as a probable cause of the crash.

The collision between two trains on a junction approaching Fisherton Tunnel on October 31 left one of the drivers, 74-year-old Robin Tandy, with “life-changing” injuries, and many passengers with soft tissue injuries.

According to the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB), the investigation into the collision suggests that the cause was almost certainly low adhesion between train wheels and rails.

The train lines only reopened again on Tuesday (November 16), after industry workers worked 24 hours a day to replace damaged equipment and test its operation before resuming services.
