Euston Works

August Bank Holiday Weekend 2017 - Extremely busy services between London and Birmingham. 

Preparation work for the brand new high speed railway will affect Chiltern services. Significantly increased numbers of customers are expected and therefore, our trains will be extremely busy on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August 2017.

As well as the above there is also a sporting event at Wembley on both days.  We'll be running an amended timetable throughout our entire network for the duration of the works and trains will be re-timed.
