Until the end of February, customers travelling between Scotland and England via Carlisle will experience extended journeys for the remainder of this month due to the closure of the West Coast Main Line between Carlisle and Scotland. This is due to damage to the Lamington viaduct, south of Carstairs, caused by Storm Frank, at the beginning of the year.
We’re really sorry for this inconvenience. Safety is always the most important consideration on the railway and we support Network Rail’s decision to close this section of route until they are sure it is safe to run trains. Network Rail estimate that the West Coast Main Line will not reopen until the first week in March following repairs to the damaged viaduct. Further details of this work can be found through Network Rail.
The rest of our routes are open as normal.
Virgin Trains East Coast services between England and Scotland are unaffected.
