Description

Engineering work is taking place between Grantham and Retford, closing some lines between these stations, from 13:0 on Saturday until 12:00 on Sunday.

An amended timetable will operate on the Each Coast Main Line between the North of England and London Kings Cross.

A reduced number of trains can run between Grantham and Retford. This will result in some trains being diverted via an alternative route (Lincoln) and some trains being re-timed, have extended journey times or being cancelled.
