Live Train Information & Service Updates

At East Midlands Trains we’re committed to delivering timely and meaningful information when things don’t quite go to plan.  We appreciate delays are frustrating which is why we work closely with Network Rail to prevent them from happening in the first place but there are still times when things go wrong. In the event of multiple trains being delayed by over 15 minutes on the same route we will update the affected route with timely, meaningful information about the problem, the impact this will have to our train service and the best advice to get you where you need to be.
