The woman was arrested by British Transport Police on suspicion of causing an unlawful act with intent to endanger safety as a result of the crash which happened on March 29 near Waterbeach station.
She was also arrested for failure to provide a specimen before being released on bail until April 26.
The collision caused disruption on services between Cambridge and Ely.

A Magpas spokesman said: “Our enhanced medical team worked alongside an East of England Ambulance Service paramedic crew to assess a patient who fortunately hadn’t suffered any life-threatening injuries.
“The patient was then taken in a land ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in a stable condition.”
A Greater Anglia spokesman said the train involved belonged to Great Northern. The train driver was unhurt.
