Euston disruption continues into evening peak

Press release   •   Oct 17, 2019 16:09 BST

Passengers at London Euston are being advised of continued disruption into the evening peak as services continue to recover from a major signal failure earlier.

While some trains have been able to complete their journeys to and from Euston since mid-morning, the knock-on effects of displaced units and train crew will mean further cancellations.

A half-hourly service out of Euston is running at XX25 and XX55 and London Northwestern Railway has also arranged for some additional longer services to run in order to move as many people as possible as quickly as possible.

Passengers are advised to check their journeys before travelling and may wish to consider catching a later service or using an alternative route if possible as Euston is expected to be extremely busy. Ticket acceptance with other operators is in place.

Travellers are advised to check for the latest updates at .
