  • The 21:09 Wolverhampton to London Euston service will be diverted via Northampton, slightly extending the journey time between Rugby and London.
  • The 21:42 London Euston to Wolverhampton service will be diverted via Northampton, slightly extending the journey time between London and Rugby.


  • The 09:00 Preston to London Euston service will be replaced by a bus between Preston and Crewe.
