The train service remains suspended until further notice, said Gautrain management in a statement.

Train services between Pretoria and Hatfield remain suspended until further notice.

“This is due to an incident that occurred at approximately 08:30 this morning. As the train approached Hatfield station at low speed, a minor derailment occurred. All passengers on board the train were safely evacuated without any injury and a full investigation is underway to determine the cause of the incident,” the report stated.


“Technicians are also working to fully restore the service and in the meantime a Gautrain Bus Service is transporting passengers between these two stations. The service to all other Gautrain stations remain unaffected. We will keep our passengers updated and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.”

Train services to all other areas remained unaffected.
