From the LBC website
Quote
LFB said in a statement: "We were called at 6.41am to reports of a trackside fire at railway line near Canal Way, North Kensington.

"Some trackside switch equipment and trackside cabling were damaged by fire. There were no reports of any injuries.

"We sent one fire engine from North Kensington Station. The fire was under control by 0740."

At least 12 Great Western Railway (GWR (Great Western Railway)) trains were cancelled and many more are delayed, the company said.

Disruption is ongoing, with routes run by GWR and Transport for London (TfL» (Transport for London - about)) affected.

Due to a points failure between Westbury and Newbury the line towards Newbury is blocked.

Train services running through these stations may be terminated at and started back from Newbury.

All stations between Westbury and Newbury will not be served. Disruption is expected until 06:45 08/02.

Looks like a car has crashed onto the railway line, presumably from the motorway bridge west of the station.  Could take a while to sort out!

Just to update that the car stopped on the embankment slope rather than making it onto the tracks, so only the up relief line remains closed now.
