metrorail thumb medium90 92News24 reports that two of Cape Town's three main train lines are back up and running after three days of around the clock repair work to Metrorail's vandalised equipment.  

Regional spokesperson Riana Scott on Wednesday confirmed that, while delays of between 20 and 40 minutes were still being experienced, the northern and central lines were running.  "The service is running better than [on Tuesday]," she said.  Metrorail is optimistic that repairs could be completed by the end of Wednesday.  Operations were disabled on Sunday after cable thieves hit one of the communications nerve centres on Saturday.
