Buses replacing trains between Three Bridges and Horsham till midday after power failure

An electricity supply failure this morning has meant no trains are able to run between the stations.



A bus replacement service has been set up.

Southern Rail say that some of the services between Horsham and London,
(Particularly services from Southampton Central and Portsmouth Harbour), dependant on driver route knowledge will be diverted via Epsom and Dorking.

The fault came from a power supply failure to the electrical third rail at Three Bridges which prevented services from operating through platforms 1 and 2.

Southern say that engineers have now successfully replaced the faulty component but other issues in stabilising the power supply have arisen.
