Description

Engineering work is taking place between Bedford and Kettering very early on Saturday, closing some lines.

  • The 05:21 Derby to London St Pancras International service will be retimed to depart Derby at 05:02, and will be diverted, not calling at Long Eaton. A replacement bus will run from Derby at 04:34 to Long Eaton, before continuing to East Midlands Parkway to connect with the train.
