No passenger trains are running into or out of Wellington on Thursday evening.

There has been a points fault on the Johnsonville line at the Wellington railyard, which is affecting all services.

OnTrack says it does not know when services will resume and contractors are working on the problem.

It has not been determined whether the fault was caused by bad weather.
