Wellington trains running again

6:57 pm on 31 July 2008

Wellington's passenger rail service have now resumed, although some services are still experiencing short delays on Thursday.

A points failure just north of the Wellington station platforms late in the afternoon saw suburban services grind to a halt.

Ontrack says the fault happened at the worst possible time and it apologises for the delays to peak evening services.

It says the fault may have been caused by bad weather.
