Alterations to services between Birmingham New Street, Leicester, Peterborough, Cambridge and Stansted Airport on Thursday 17 & Friday 18 August 2017.
Due to a derailed freight train between March and Ely, trains are operating between Birmingham New Street and Peterborough, and between Ely and Stansted Airport in both directions.
Road transport is in operation between Peterborough and Ely. Some early morning and evening train services extend to/from March.
Passengers may find it quicker to travel via London; CrossCountry tickets will be accepted on other operators' services.
Service alterations for Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 August will be released on Friday 18 August. Until this time, searches through Journey Planners may be incorrect.
A normal service is expected to resume on Monday 21 August.
