Train services between Ipswich, Cambridge and Peterborough were heavily disrupted this morning due to a engine problems on an early morning service which was blocking the line.
The 5.40am Colchester to Peterborough service was delayed at Bury St Edmunds after the Stadler bi-mode train encountered engine problems and was stuck on the line.
Greater Anglia said the engine fault could not be fixed and the train would need to be rescued by a locomotive before services can resume.
A tweet from the company said: "The fault can not be rectified and as a result will need to be rescued by a locomotive."
The train has now been moved and the line is clear.
