STRIKES: No trains will be running from Burton Joyce on Saturday

Local operator East Midlands Railway (EMR) says a ‘significantly reduced’ service will operate on other routes during the strike. 

Passengers are being asked to only use the following reduced services ‘if absolutely necessary’:

EMR Intercity

  • One train per hour between Nottingham and London St Pancras
  • One train per hour between Sheffield and London St Pancras

EMR Regional

  • One train per hour between Derby and Nottingham
  • One train per hour between Sheffield and Nottingham
  • One train per hour between Leicester and Nottingham
  • Two hourly service between Nottingham and Skegness – Only calling at Grantham – Sleaford – Boston – Skegness

The above services will only run between 07:30 and 18:30 – with the last departures starting between 15:00 and 16:30.

Skegness customers should continue to book their journey in advance. If they have already booked and their train is cancelled they will be able to use their ticket on the service before or after. 

Will Rogers, managing director for East Midlands Railway, said: “We will be significantly reducing our services on Saturday due to the ongoing strike organised by the RMT union.

“From Monday, July 31 to Saturday, August 5, and Monday, August 7 to Saturday, August 12, there will also likely be several train cancellations – this is due to action short of a strike by the ASLEF union.

“Cancellations could be as late as 22:00pm the day before customers travel. During this period, customers are strongly advised to regularly check if their train is running before setting off.

“It is recommended that customers also check the departure time of their last train before embarking on their journey and familiarise themselves with the overall impact of the strike on their entire route.
