Slightly reduced timetable across EMR routes until further notice

On Monday 17th January, EMR made very small reductions to its timetable as we experienced high levels of Covid-related absence among our workforce. We're pleased to announce that from Saturday 26th February 2022 we will be uplifting our timetable further and reinstating key routes such as Derby - Crewe on Sundays.

This is a big step towards reinstating our full timetable however a handful of services will still be omitted until such a time that our resource levels allow us to provide a full timetable consistently and reliably.

Short notice cancellations are incredibly frustrating and something we are determined to avoid as much as possible. A slight reduction of services means we can protect those which are important for customers who are still travelling and provide a more reliable service.These changes will remain under constant review and changes will be made as needed.

You can find details of specific trains and routes below. Owing to the week-by-week nature of the reductions online journey planners will be updated on a weekly basis.

What's changed?

The following services will be removed or amended until further notice. You can download the revised timetables here.
