⚠️ We're sorry to say that @Se_Railway + @TLRailUK trains will be disrupted this morning by this cracked rail near #NewCross . We're working on a plan to run trains around the problem but it's not a normal rail, so it's not an easy fix. #TLUpdates /1 ⚠️
@Se_Railway @TLRailUK It's called a "crossing" which is where one track crosses over another, and it's a bespoke part made from either cast or fabricated steel - a big chunk of steel it is too. We can't just clamp the rail and run trains - we have to cut it out and replace it with a new part. /2
@Se_Railway @TLRailUK Luckily the location means we can cut this part out and put "plain line" in its place, although we won't be able to swing the points and make trains change tracks. This crack was discovered soon after 2am + much of the work has been completed so we hope to have this done soon. /3
