Emergency work will be carried out on the rail line at Hatfield overnight – but First Capital Connect bosses say they expect a normal service to run tomorrow (Tuesday).
The work on overhead power lines is set to be done by Network Rail engineers following storm damage.
Thousands of commuters were unable to travel today because of train cancellations.
A statement from the rail company said: “We expect to run to the full timetable tomorrow (Tuesday) but urge passengers to check before they travel on the First Capital Connect website and on Twitter @firstCC, especially on the Thameslink route at Radlett where Network Rail will be carrying out emergency engineering work right up until start of service tomorrow morning.”
Although many routes have now reopened, rail chiefs are still urging passengers to only travel when absolutely necessary.
