SOME train services have resumed at Eastleigh following last week's derailment - but disruption is set to continue for weeks.

South Western Railway (SWR) has announced a partial resumption of services following the temporary repairs carried out over the weekend but say not all services can call at the station.

Disruption is expected to continue until the end of the month.

Six 52-tonne freight wagons jumped the tracks last Tuesday, blocking the main line in both directions as well as damaging the track and points.

SWR says only London-bound trains approaching Eastleigh from Southampton will be able to call at Eastleigh for the time being.

Passengers heading south from the London/Basingstoke/Winchester direction will have to travel to Southampton Airport Parkway and then catch a northbound service.

Passengers at Eastleigh wishing to travel to Southampton/Bournemouth/Weymouth should go to Winchester and catch a southbound service.

Trains from Romsey to Salisbury via Chandler's Ford are among those unable to call at Eastleigh.

Replacement buses will be operating.

In a statement John Halsall, managing director of the southern region of Network Rail said: "Everyone here in my team is bitterly disappointed with the service over the last few days and we’re doing everything we can to make it right."

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch is currently investigating the incident.
