Trains between Preston and Scotland will not run until Friday after lines were 'majorly damaged'. Hundreds of passengers on the West Coast Mainline have been stranded for hours after an electric overhead cable snapped. The cable broke on the route between Lancaster and Preston at about 08:35 GMT blocking both lines in both directions, Network Rail said. One person tweeted they were on a train for seven-and-a-half hours, another called it 'an absolute horror show'. Stations along the route have become crowded as the delays continue. Network Rail said that section of the line would be closed for the rest of the day.
