Engineering work is taking place between Sunderland and Northallerton, closing some lines through the area.

As a result, trains to / from Sunderland will be diverted via Durham (not calling), and will not call at Hartlepool or Eaglescliffe.

Replacement buses will run between Sunderland and Northallerton, connecting with train services. Please note that buses from Sunderland will run earlier than the usual train services in order to connect with train services at Northallerton.
