Mess in sight at Montparnasse station. Part of the rail traffic is completely at a standstill this Sunday. Due to a power supply problem at Massy (Essonne), all trains to or from the South-West (Paris-Bordeaux, Paris-Hendaye and Paris-Toulouse) could not leave or enter the station, report France Bleu Paris and SNCF on its website. Significant delays are to be expected.
Teams have been working since midday, SNCF said. At 14:42 p.m., more than two hours after the incident was announced, the railway company indicates that "train traffic has been able to resume on the Atlantic high-speed line, on one track", but it remains "strongly disrupted".
Between 30 and 60 minutes of delay are to be expected from Paris Montparnasse station, and between 30 minutes and 2 hours of delay are to be expected on arrival. On social media, some travelers report being stuck on the train for some time.
@OUIGO what is happening is SHAMEFUL! We are told an arrival at 18h in Montparnasse we will have spent nearly 7h blocked. This is madness! Who are we kidding?
