UPDATE: Normal rail service resumed between Scunthorpe and Barnetby following broken down train
NORMAL service has been resumed on the railway line between Scunthorpe and Barnetby following a broken down freight train.
The broken down freight train caused minor delays after carriages became divided, causing disruption between Scunthorpe and Barnetby stations.
A replacement bus service ran for a short time, between approximately 12.15pm and 1.40pm today (Saturday, March 16).
After the repairs were successfully completed, 15 minute delays were experienced by passenger while services recovered.

Journeys between Scunthorpe and Barnetby are now running normally.
This latest rail issue follows a major landslip on the line between Scunthorpe and Doncaster, which could take until June to repair.
The landslip, which happened towards the start of February, has resulted in a replacement bus service between the two stations while repairs are carried out.
