Britain’s railway will be moving to a special, temporary timetable to ensure vital train services for key workers can keep running throughout a prolonged COVID-19 outbreak.

From next Monday 23 March 2020, LNER will temporarily reduce the services it operates. These changes are in response to lower customer demand, fewer colleagues available to work and Government advice against non-essential travel.

Special, temporary timetable changes will see LNER continue to run services throughout the day, including at peak times, serving core routes and key interchange stations, enabling customers to connect between intercity and local services run by other operators.

The new weekday timetable will run from Monday 23 March 2020, with weekend services confirmed in the coming days. However, due to the rapidly evolving situation, some trains may continue to be subject to short notice changes or cancellations.

The following changes are being made to the Lincoln weekday services from Monday:

Southbound weekday services to be cancelled during this period:

  • 11:18 Lincoln to Kings Cross
  • 13:23 Lincoln to Kings Cross
  • 15:26 Lincoln to Kings Cross
  • 17:14 Lincoln to Kings Cross
  • 20:25 Lincoln to Kings Cross

Northbound weekday services to be cancelled during this period:

  • 08:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln
  • 10:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln
  • 12:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln
  • 14:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln
  • 16:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln
  • 19:06 Kings Cross to Lincoln

Onboard catering has also been temporarily removed from LNER trains and First Class lounges have been temporarily closed. These measures are designed to protect customers and staff.
