Stirling to London trains are reinstated05/12/18
We're pleased to announce that the direct Stirling to London train is being reinstated from 9 December, following a temporary suspension of this train over the summer.
Monday to Friday the following service will be reinstated from 9 December:
- 05.26 Stirling – London King's Cross
- 15.00 London King's Cross – Stirling
Over the summer we took the decision to withdraw the train service to improve its’ reliability after damage from the infamous ‘beast from the east’ storm last winter began to affect the service. Since August, we have implemented a comprehensive programme of reliability improvements to our existing trains and recruited more engineers dedicated to eliminating defects that cause delays.
David Horne, Managing Director of LNER says: “We continue to work hard on existing and new initiatives to improve our performance and I’m delighted to announce that we can reinstate our 0526 Stirling to London and 1500 London to Stirling services, especially as we know how valued they are by the local community.
“We have prioritised the reinstatement of these services and hope this move reassures our customers that we are fully committed to playing our part in connecting this important region of Scotland to the rest of the East Coast Mainline.”
Stirling MP, Stephen Kerr added: “I was delighted to receive the news that these important services are being reinstated. Through the regular contact I have had with LNER I know they have worked really hard to address the problems that caused the suspension. That they have prioritised this and managed to get the service back running before the end of the year should be acknowledged.”
