  Unplanned service disruptions currently along the East Midlands route

Last updated: 24.07.2014 02:11

Industrial action affecting East Midlands Trains on Thursday 31 July

Industrial action by members of the Unite Union is taking place on Thursday 31 July.

As a result of this action being taken by train maintenance staff, there will be some changes to East Midlands Trains services today.

Buses will replace trains on the following routes:


The replacement buses are currently unable to call at Shirebrook because of a road bridge closure. Passengers travelling from Shirebrook should use the station help point for onward travel. Passengers travelling to Shirebrook should travel to Mansfield where alternative transport will be provided onwards to Shirebrook.

The replacement buses are unable to call at Sileby and Barrow-upon-Soar stations. The bus will pick up at Tesco at Sileby and Hunting Lodge Public House at Barrow-upon-Soar.

The majority of services will continue to run as normal to/from London, although a number of services may operate with fewer carriages than usual.

A full train service will run to/from Skegness, Boston, Sleaford, Grantham and Nottingham.

The majority of train services will run as normal between Derby, Uttoxeter, Stoke on Trent and Crewe.

Trains between Liverpool Lime Street, Manchester and Nottingham will run as normal. Customers travelling to and from Grantham, Peterborough, Ely and stations to Norwich may need to change trains at Nottingham (a revised train/rail replacement bus service will run between Nottingham and Norwich).
