It's been a hectic weekend for train commuters, with four hundred engineers working overnight to make sure that the system was up and running before peak hour today.

This comes after a nightmare over the weekend, with trains disrupted and cancelled due to a system signal upgrade.

A warning was issued on Friday ahead of the planned works, however there were still widespread delays which caused havoc on the City Circle line.


One commuter told the Hit Newsroom that they spent 7.5 hours getting to Newcastle on Sunday, with several lengthy wait times spent on the journey as well.
