Do not travel – rail lines to Euston closed Sunday

Train operators serving Euston station are advising passengers not to travel this Sunday.

Network Rail needs to make repairs following major damage to overhead power lines in the Wembley area.

This means no trains will be able to access Euston station until at least midday. However this is only an estimate. The work may take longer and passengers planning to travel later on Sunday are advised to check before setting off. London Overground services are also affected.

London Midland services to and from the capital will not be able to run south of Northampton or Milton Keynes while the repair work takes place.

Tickets dated for travel Sunday will be accepted by London Midland on Monday.

A London Midland spokesman said “We apologise to our passengers. Until the damage is repaired it just isn’t possible to run trains. So the advice has to be - don’t travel this Sunday until you have checked that the lines in and out of Euston have reopened.”
