Please note that we will be operating an amended service this August Bank Holiday weekend from Friday 23rd to Monday 26th August. We will run a very limited service on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August.   

Our advice is DO NOT TRAVEL - only travel if it is absolutely essential. 

See below for useful information and FAQs for travel information between 23rd and 26th August 2019.

A Limited Service

Hull Trains services on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August will be affected by engineering works – London King's Cross station is CLOSED. We will be operating a very limited service between Hull, Brough and London ST PANCRAS only. You can find further information and amended timetables for travel on Friday 23rd and Monday 26th August on our Engineering Works page.


Our usual London station – Kings Cross – is closed on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August for engineering works.  Instead, we will run a very limited service to London St Pancras  station using an alternative route.  We will stop at Hull, Brough and London St Pancras ONLY. 
Our trains are likely to be extremely  busy as we are running fewer trains than normal.  A number of events and sporting fixtures are taking place that weekend.  Booking your ticket in advance will ensure you can reserve a seat and have the most comfortable journey with us. The journey time to London St Pancras will be around 1 hour longer than the usual time to Kings Cross.
We advise that you DO NOT TRAVEL because trains will be extremely busy.  But if it is absolutely necessary, please buy your tickets in advance of the day of travel and reserve a seat.
We strongly advise customers to travel on Thursday 22, Friday 23 or Tuesday 27 August instead.
Partly because our trains will use a different route to London than normal (bypassing Retford, Grantham and Stevenage) and partly to reduce overcrowding (we would be the only company running trains from Doncaster directly to London), we have taken the decision to stop only at Hull, Brough and London St Pancras.
Our trains will only stop at Hull, Brough and London St Pancras on the 24th and 25th August. If you require to travel to or from another station, please use National Rail Enquiries or by phone on 08457 484950 for information about your options
If you already have a ticket for travel between the 23rd - 26th August, please check train times carefully. Please contact the place you bought the ticket from for further information.  If you need advice about this, please contact us on 03450 710 222.
Once our amended timetables are confirmed with Network Rail, we ensure that the information is available on our Engineering Works page and through National Rail Enquiries. Here you will find altered timetables and further information.
We will be operating slightly amended services on both Friday 23rd and Monday 26th August. You can find amended timetables on our Engineering Works page.
No.  London King's Cross station is closed completely on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August due to engineering works. Our very limited service will arrive and depart from London St Pancras – just next to London King's Cross, easily accessible and clearly signposted.
Network Rail are upgrading the track and signalling leading into London King’s Cross station to allow for additional long distance trains, such as ours, to run in future. The August bank holiday work includes the replacement of 1.5 miles worth of track, overhead wires and signalling on the approach to London King's Cross station, along with the re-opening of a disused tunnel to create an additional two tracks. Further details can be found here.
