Flooding affecting Nottingham rail routes on London and Norwich lines

There is heavy rain flooding the railway.

This is between Sheffield and Stockport and between Derby and Chesterfield, disrupting our trains on the Liverpool / Nottingham / Norwich and Sheffield / Derby / London St Pancras routes.

Heavy rain throughout the afternoon has caused rising flood water levels, making it dangerous for our services to run. Network Rail are monitoring the situation.

East Midlands Railways said:

‘Services on our Liverpool/Nottingham/Norwich route will start and terminate at Nottingham Station, not calling between Nottingham and Manchester Piccadilly.

‘Trains on our Sheffield/Derby/London St Pancras route in the Derby to Sheffield direction will need to be diverted. If they are unable to divert, these services will terminate at Derby. Diverting will add an additional 15 minutes to the journey.

‘Services on our Sheffield/Derby/London St Pancras route in the Sheffield to Derby direction are still able to run with a delay.

‘Cross Country services are also affected by this problem.

‘Currently, our Derby to Matlock services are still able to run as these use a different track.

‘At present we do not currently know how long the disruption is likely to last. When weather conditions improve, our priority will be to get trains running normally again.’
