what is the shape of the object it was about but both were discovered by staff from Network Rail before any train could run on them.
"It was a serious and deliberate attempt where someone wanted to carry out an extensive sabotage and the disruption of Britain's railways," says Sean O'callaghan at the transportpolisen in the statement.
also that the objects were not meant to damage the actual railroad, but was placed there to delay the traffic.
