Peak calls on East Midlands services have been removed temporarily while we deliver the biggest upgrade to the Midland Main Line since it was completed in 1870, which will help deliver enhanced services from 2020.

From December 2020, once the Midland Main Line upgrade is complete, passengers at Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough, Bedford, Luton and Luton Airport Parkway will benefit from a new, dedicated East Midlands service into London St Pancras.
