The hot weather had caused the lines to buckle in canton Geneva just before the French border.

The issues started on Friday afternoon, trapping two trains and 150 passengers.

TGVs from Lausanne were unaffected and buses were laid on to take Geneva passengers to Bellegarde in France to pick up the train.

Local trains running into Geneva from France were also affected.
