Signal failures and a faulty train were throwing several Transport for London (TfL) lines into chaos on Tuesday lunchtime (October 17).

The Bakerloo line, Elizabeth line, London Overground and Piccadilly line are all reporting either part-suspensions, severe delays, or both.

Both the Bakerloo line and London Overground are part-suspended along sections of their networks due to a faulty train at Harrow and Wealdstone.

he Elizabeth line, which is being hit with severe delays between Paddington and Heathrow and minor delays Abbey Wood to Paddington, and the Piccadilly line, reporting severe delays between Acton Town and Cockfosters, are impacted by signal failures.

TfL has said tickets are being accepted on alternative transport links, which vary depending on the affected service.

Yesterday, a section of the south London tram network was down, after TfL identified damaged pantographs on a number of its vehicles, leading to a “shortage of trams”.
