⚠️ There's some big changes to @Se_Railway services through #Chislehurst tonight and tomorrow morning, affecting trains to #Sevenoaks, #Tonbridge and further afield. The reason is emergency engineering work related to this pink rail - read on... /1
The rail is dyed pink so the crack you can see on the left can be seen more clearly - and it's the crack that's causing the disruption. It's part of a crossing, that allows trains to cross from one track to another, and the crack means trains can only pass over it at 5mph. /2
This shows the crack seen through a handheld scanner and you can see from the scale of it that we can't leave this in place for long and still run a normal service, so tonight our team from Orpington Delivery Unit is coming in to cut the section out and replace it. /3

UPDATE: You'll have seen plenty of coverage of this picture today and yesterday, showing the derailed train at #Tonbridge. Here's a brief overview of where we are and what we are doing, also why @Se_Railway are affected even though it's not their train... /1
This picture shows clearly the cables cut when the low-speed derailment happened yesterday, in sidings off the line to Redhill. The cut cables mean those sidings are completely "dead" and trains can't move. That includes @Se_Railway trains, which are trapped without power. /2
Our colleagues @Se_Railway are running as many trains as they can on the Tonbridge/Charing Cross services but there will be some cancellations as some of those trains are usually formed of stock trapped in the sidings today. Please check with them for travel details /3
