Services returned to normal today (Monday)
Passengers on Southeastern services are starting the week with a normal timetable after major disruption last week.
Early on Tuesday morning, a freight train derailed in Lewisham, wreaking havoc with commuters for the rest of the week.
No injuries were reported from the incident.
Today (Monday) Southeastern confirmed that all lines have now reopen, with trains running through Lewisham normally.
Safety checks are scheduled to take place after the rear two carriages on the freight train spilled onto the tracks, causing extensive damage to the railway line - part of which had to be completely rebuilt.
The checks will take place after the morning rush hour.
Passengers who faced disruption last week may be able to claim money back as part of Southeastern’s Delay Repay service.
