The train company said delays were still ongoing on journeys towards London Waterloo after all signalling in the Earlsfield area of south-west London went haywire.
SWT had already warned of disruption because of a track defect on a set of points between Woking and Surbiton, which blocked the London-bound fast line.
A company spokesman said: “Services are still recovering from a major signal failure on mainline services through Clapham Junction to Waterloo.”
Network Rail apologised for the disruption and said it would continue to work to resume a normal service as quickly as possible.
South West Trains passengers are set to face severe disruption next month when work begins to extend platforms at Waterloo, meaning many services will not be running and some commuter stations will be closed altogether.
It said trains could be cancelled, delayed by up to 90 minutes or revised until the end of service.
