Engineering work is taking place in the Crewe area from 23:45 on Saturday, closing some lines.

As a result, the 20:31 London Euston to Preston service will be amended to run between London Euston and Manchester Piccadilly. Customers travelling to Preston should change at Crewe for rail replacement buses to Preston. Some buses will run direct between Crewe and Preston, whilst others will call at all stations.
