The train line between Yeovil Junction and Exeter St Davids remains closed today due to a landslip.
Operator South West Trains had hoped the line may be able to reopen today, but heavy rain over the weekend has added to the damage.
"Our engineers are on site and are working hard to repair the damage caused by the flooding," said a statement on the South West Trains website.
"Due to the continued bad weather over the weekend, engineers have faced some setbacks to repairs and work undertaken.
