Investigators from Network Rail will now probe the cause of the accident which involved the 6.05pm Marks Tey-to-Sudbury service.
A spokeswoman said the inquiry may be passed to the Rail Accident Investigation Branch.
A spokeswoman for one, the train operating company, said the class 156 diesel train was "full of passengers'.
She said: "It was travelling at low speed when it hit the buffers. There were a few injuries but they have been dealt with and did not require hospital treatment.
"There appears to be no damage to the train, it was a slow collision and all the passengers have gone home.'
She added that buses would replace train services tonight and said a "full investigation' would take place into the cause of the accident.
