Wellington train services back to normal after breakdown


Normal services have resumed after passengers on a train headed from Wellington to Waikanae were stranded for over an hour after a mechanical fault.

A Metlink spokesperson told 1 NEWS the 6pm service from Wellington to Waikanae experienced the fault within a kilometre after leaving the Wellington train station.

The train then attempted to return to the station but was unable to.

The train was blocking one of the three main lines out of Wellington.
