Transnet has announced the immediate suspension of all Blue Train services.
The suspension came into effect yesterday.
Last week, operations were also halted after a fire broke out in one of the coaches of the Blue Train.
Services were also halted late last year after the train was involved in an accident.
Transnet spokesperson Ayanda Shezi says the aim is to reinstate services as soon as possible.
