East Midlands Trains offer more services

Passengers travelling on East Midlands Trains are set to benefit from additional services. The improvements have been announced alongside the launch of the train operator’s new timetable today.

3,600 seats have been added to the Nottingham to Liverpool services. Sunday afternoon journey times to London will further be improved by up to 20 minutes on some journeys.

Key changes include an additional 3,675 seats on services from Nottingham to Liverpool. Following passenger feedback, the 15:46 Sunday service from Nottingham to Liverpool will also be extended.

Some weekday services to Grimsby will call at Hykeham as a result of the new Siemens factory opening in North Lincolnshire

David Horne, managing director for East Midlands Trains, said: “We invest a lot of time and resource into making sure our timetable offers the best possible service for our passengers.  

“Every year, we review the timetable and listen to feedback from passengers, staff and stakeholders on how we can make further improvements.  

“This year, we’re pleased to be completing the next phase of our work to provide extra capacity on the busy Nottingham to Liverpool route and provide some additional services on our local routes”.
