Massive Train Accident at Farningham Road Causes Major Disruption Between Rochester and Swanley

A serious train accident has occurred this morning at Farningham Road, South Darenth, causing major delays and cancellations for commuters. The incident involves a Southeastern train that crashed into a fallen tree on the railway line.

As a result of the collision, all services between Rochester and Swanley have been suspended until just before noon. The train is currently unable to move due to the damage caused by the impact with the tree.

To ensure the safety of passengers and crew, the power has been switched off and engineers are on their way to the site. It is expected that they will work to resolve the issue and get the train back on track as soon as possible.

In the meantime, commuters are advised to expect disruptions until 11:45 am, with some services being diverted via Dartford. Southeastern has also posted an update on their social media platform, X, informing passengers of the current situation.

According to the post, the power has been turned off to allow engineers safe access to the track. They will work to fix the damaged train and restore services as soon as possible. However, until then, the Sole Street line will remain blocked in both directions.

Passengers are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and to check for updates on the situation before heading to the station. The cause of the fallen tree is yet to be determined, and authorities are investigating the incident.
