Leeds and Stirling services: timetable changes

We’re sorry to announce that a small number of services between London King’s Cross and Leeds will be temporarily removed from the timetable from 13 August 2018 onwards. In addition, one service between Stirling and Edinburgh will also be temporarily cancelled from 27 August 2018, although tickets will be valid on alternative ScotRail services. 

We apologise for any inconvenience these changes cause you.


The affected services are:


Mondays – Fridays (and Saturdays for Leeds)

09.03 London King's Cross - Leeds
11.45 Leeds - London King's Cross

The cancellations and amendments are due to operational changes which will help to improve overall reliability along our East Coast route in the event of further network-led disruption.

If you're travelling northbound, our 15:00 departure from London King’s Cross arrives into Edinburgh at 19:25, and connects to the Scotrail service departing at 19:43. Your arrival time into Stirling will be 20:43.
