WALES: Flood waters block railway line.
The line between Blaenau Ffestiniog and Llandudno Junction is blocked at Betws y Coed.
An Arriva Trains Wales spokeswoman said trains were running normally from Llandudno to Llanrwst North where a bus will take passengers on.
A Network Rail spokeswoman said services had to be suspended until the water had subsided and bridges inspected.
Yesterday engineers inspected the affected line and divers checked a bridge near Llanrwst.
The damage is not thought to be as bad as 2005 when heavy rain caused the river to flood washing away the line in several places. The line was closed for several months while repairs were carried out.
Passengers are advised to contact National Rail Enquiries on 08457 484950 for up to date information.
