Now, the firm's managing director has revealed the cost of engineering work on the tracks will run into millions.
Phil Verster, route managing director for Network Rail, said: "We are committed to recovery and will incur the cost to recover the railway.
"We are not allowing finances to stop us.
"I think it may cost tens of millions to sort out and it is by far the biggest operation we have seen in recent years."
Engineers will need to move about one million cubic metres of material from the spoil heap that caused the damage.
