It was a frustrating and cramped morning on the trains today with delays and changes to services on both lines into the capital.

TranzMetro released several text and email alerts advising passengers of the delays, but some came too late to be of use. An alert sent at 8.27am, advised that the 6.48am from Masterton to Wellington was delayed.

The delays this morning included:

- Upper Hutt Express services to Wgtn were running up to 30mins late due to a mechanical fault.

- The 7.40am between Upper Hutt and Wellington ran up to 15 minutes late due to mechanical fault.

- The 7.20am and 8.12am services from Johnsonville to Wellington ran as two cars only.
