Rail travel has again been disrupted today (Monday) with the main line between March and Whittlesey remaining closed.
It follows a derailment last Thursday after a freight train collided with a tractor on a remote level crossing outside of March.
Engineers worked through the weekend and had hoped to re-open the line today but Greater Anglia advised it is not expected to re-open until tomorrow (Wednesday).
A spokesperson for Greater Anglia said disruption is expected until 4am on August 24.
Rail Replacement Bus services, operated by Milken, Youngs, Panther, Felixstowe Travel, Completely Travel and Dons are running between Ely and Peterborough, calling at March, Whittlesea and Peterborough.
