Planning to travel with LNER this weekend? Then check ahead.
That’s the advice from the train company as another weekend of disruption beckons.
Aslef is holding a series of strikes targetting different train companies throughout December – and LNER is affected this Saturday, 2 December.
Essential engineering work is then being carried out on Sunday 3 December, which will result in LNER running a limited service to and from London.
For both days, LNER are strongly advising customers to check their journey before they travel.
A spokesperson said: “Trains are expected to be incredibly busy, with very limited seat reservations available as a result.
“Customers who have not yet purchased tickets or made a seat reservation for their journey are advised to consider travelling on another date.”
On Saturday 2 December a reduced timetable will be available between Edinburgh and London and Leeds and London, with no services running beyond Edinburgh.
On Sunday 3 December there will be no trains running to or from London King’s Cross, with services terminating at St Neots. For southbound journeys, a coach service will be in place from St Neots to Cockfosters London Underground Station, where customers can pick up Piccadilly line services.
Northbound journeys will begin at St Neots, with a coach service running from Cockfosters London Underground Station to St Neots.
“However, customers are advised that the coach service is expected to be extremely limited and may mean that journeys into and out of the capital could be up to two hours longer than scheduled,” the spokesperson added.
A dedicated webpage detailing the possible disruption has been made available for customers who do wish to continue with their travel plans.
For those who wish to go ahead and travel, LNER are “strongly recommending that they check the entirety of their journey before setting off”.
