Train company staff admitted they were having a 'night-mare' after a report of horses on the tracks delayed trains between Kent and London.
Southeastern warned about the delays at Kemsing via Twitter at about 7pm - but were a bit quick out of the traps and messed up the location.
Its tweet said the horses had been spotted on an embankment at Kemsing but mistakenly added that it meant services between Sheerness and Sittingbourne were being disrupted, having mixed up the village near Sevenoaks with Kemsley on the edge of Sittingbourne.
Realising the error, it was corrected in the next post, which joked: "I'm having a BIT of a Night Mare with these horses and have trotted up the wrong line.
"The horses are in fact on the Mane-line at #Kemsing between Maidstone East and Otford. Neigh harm done."
As it turned out, the horses could not be found and by 8.15pm the earlier delays had cleared.
