Delays on First Great Western trains out of Truro
Trains were at a standstill in Truro due to an unknown problem.
The 6.22pm service from Truro to Bristol was stuck at the station and customers were not given any explanation for the hold up.
First Great Western told the West Briton there had been a “train fault on the line” that had caused multiple problems.
Esme Ashcroft from Carharrack was waiting for the train at Truro.

She said: “About 15 minutes before it was due there was an announcement that it was delayed and then about 30 minutes later they said they were suffering serious delays.
“People were getting really annoyed. There was a lady opposite with two young children and the baby was crying – it was obviously distressing.”
The train left Truro at approximately 7.45pm but First Great Western said there could be further delays.
