East Midlands Railway (EMR) has confirmed it is slashing its regional services from today (June 19).

The firm run rail services from Burton Joyce, Carlton, Netherfield and Newstead stations.

East Midlands Railway (EMR) said on their website that their new timetable, introduced last month, was “not performing as well as we, or our customers, expect”.

It said this had led to “short notice cancellations and difficult journeys” and new changes meant it could “fix underlying issues”.

EMR said in a statement on their website: “Everyone at EMR is immensely disappointed but we have introduced a dedicated team to fix these issues and reinstate these services as swiftly as possible. We are working to understand the detailed reasons behind those areas which are not working well.”

EMR will now run a reduced timetable from today (June 19) until further notice.

They the reduced timetable will allow them ‘to protect key services’ and routes such as those to Skegness – as well as ensuring they have sufficient capacity across the network.

They added: “We will still run 85% of our normal timetable, which equates to over 460-trains per day. This reduction will help to reduce short notice cancellations and short forming which we know are immensely frustrating for our customers.”

Changes include 12 fewer weekday services on the Liverpool to Nottingham line and 13 fewer on the Newark to Derby route.

  1. This is disgraceful incompetence by East Midlands Rail. There was a long running campaign to get a reasonably frequent service to serve the smaller stations between Nottingham and Lincoln. The Norwich- Liverpool route was always well used. How much of this so-called restructuring is simply the start of a process to run down these services in the long term. If there are problems then I suggest that EMR look at their staffing levels and their rostering procedures. We are still suffering the effects of the pandemic restriction, but people need to travel so I believe that EMR are being premature.

  2. I have always believed the railway companies have no real interest in the smaller stations, and deliberately provide a poor service with a view to closing them.

  3. The problem is that apart from peak times trains are empty and it’s not econical to run them, if it was those trains would be continued.
    It’s not rocket science is it 🙂
    You can’t afford to run trains that lose money.
