05/01/2009 AT 05:03

At various times though the weekend work will be taking place between Milton Keynes and Rugby, Preston and Lancaster, Carlisle and Glasgow/Edinburgh and in the Stafford area. The work between Milton Keynes and Rugby will be completed at 12:00 on Bank Holiday Monday allowing West Midlands, Preston and Manchester services to resume running to and from London Euston.

Because of route improvement work between Rugby and Milton Keynes services from the Midlands and North West will terminate and start back from Rugby including calls at Coventry or Nuneaton. The hourly West Coast Replacement Shuttle will operate in both directions from Nuneaton and Coventry direct to London Euston via an alternative route through Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. In addition a replacement coach service will run in both directions between Rugby and Milton Keynes connecting with a Pendolino shuttle service running in both directions between Milton Keynes and London Euston and calling at Watford Junction.

Trains will be unable to run between Preston and Lancaster and because of this a replacement coach service will run in both directions between these stations.

In Scotland route improvement work continues to take place between Lockerbie and Edinburgh and coaches will replace trains in both directions between these stations. On all three days anyone travelling to or from Scotland is advised to use the East Coast route via York from either Birmingham New Street or London Kings Cross to avoid the various train service alterations on the Euston to Glasgow route.
