Corby landslip: trains disrupted and ‘no estimation’ for line reopening
Rail passengers are facing more misery this morning after the Corby branch line remained blocked just north of Corby station.
A train is stuck in mud from a landslide that happened at about 4pm yesterday leaving passengers stranded for up to seven hours.
“At present there is no estimation for when the line will reopen.”
Trains will be altered between Corby and Oakham and may be diverted.
The 06.03 from Melton Mowbray started at Corby
The 09:26 from Corby to Derby will not call at Melton Mowbray or Oakham
The 16:27 Derby to Kettering will not call at Melton Mowbray and Oakham
The 17:50 from London St Pancras to Melton Mowbray will terminate at Corby
All other services on the London St Pancras / Nottingham / Sheffield line are unaffected.
Ticket acceptance is in place with Cross Country all day.
