Marylebone station remains closed following a fire on Sunday which destroyed several metres of signalling cable in the tunnel leading into the station.
At 10.00am today, Monday 16th June 2014, Chiltern Railways posted the following update on their website :
‘Marylebone station is closed due to a cable fire. Around two metres of signalling cable in the tunnel into the station has burned away meaning the signalling system is not working. Without signals we cannot safely run trains, so are not running to or from Marylebone until new cables are installed and tested.
Engineers are on site however, disruption is expected into Monday afternoon and Marylebone station will remain closed until further notice.
Passengers are advised to avoid travelling unless essential.‘
