The following is a message from East Midlands Railways

We are advising customers to consider completing their journeys on Thursday 17th February or Saturday 19th February instead, if possible, and ticket acceptance will be in place for those days should they be able to do so.

Customers with tickets for Friday who would rather not travel, even on Thursday or Saturday as an alternative, can claim a refund.

For those customers who do need to travel on Friday, we’re working alongside our colleagues at Network Rail and other Train Operators in preparation for the severe weather and we are going to be operating a reduced service on Friday 18th February.

In addition to a reduction in the timetable on the day, high winds present a risk of further short notice disruption so we are focussing our efforts on getting the message out to customers so that they can make informed travel decisions.

A dedicated webpage has been set up that will be kept up to date with our timetable plans:

Online journey planners will be updated tomorrow as service levels are confirmed.
