Major disruption at Euston

Due to substantial damage to points and track in the Euston area, there is major disruption to train services today.

London Northwestern Railway services will be significantly reduced as a Network Rail works to repair the damage. There is currently no estimation on how long it will take to repair the track and signalling.

The disruption will impact all long- distance and local services to and from Euston.

London Northwestern Railway tickets to and from the capital can be used on London Underground, London Overground, Southern, Chiltern and East Midlands Railway services while the disruption continues.
