Rail services between Windsor and Staines have reopened after being closed for a week due to flooding.
The South West Trains Network Rail Alliance confirmed today that engineers have completed checks on the line to ensure it was safe to run the trains.
Arthur Pretorius, alliance customer service director, said: "Since the flood waters have dropped, our engineers have been out checking the line is safe to allow us to resume services as soon as possible.
"We will continue to monitor the Met Office weather forecasts and take advice from the Environment Agency so we can keep customers updated on their train services."
Test trains have been travelling the route to check the track and also identify any disruptions from the storms on Friday night.
Buses will remain on standby at Staines and Windsor & Eton Riverside in case of any further problems.
