East Midlands Trains has announced major additions to its Sunday train services through Newark Castle station.
The new timetable for the Lincoln-Nottingham line will be launched on May 21.

There will be an extra seven services, meaning an hourly service for most of the day.

The first service from Lincoln to Nottingham will be at 8.47am, instead of the current 3.08pm.

Six additional services a day will also run from Nottingham to Lincoln, with the first one leaving at 9.30am, instead of the current 3.29pm.

All the new services from Nottingham to Lincoln will stop at Lowdham and Newark Castle, and there will also be extra stops at Hykeham, Swinderby, Collingham, Newark Northgate, Rolleston, Fiskerton, Bleasby, Thurgarton, Burton Joyce, and Carlton.

In addition, there will be two extra trains each way every Sunday between Nottingham and Grantham, with all services calling at Bingham.

'Huge impact for customers'

Lawrence Bowman, commercial director for East Midlands Trains, said: “The new and improved services will have a huge impact for customers across the region and hopefully open up many more exciting travel opportunities.

“We’ve already made big changes on the route in recent years, including a revamped timetable on weekdays and improvements to Saturday services.

“All of this has been made possible by Network Rail’s investment in the re-signalling works east of Nottingham so we are very pleased that these have been completed and we can deliver these significant timetable improvements.”

The new timetable will be available to view or download online four weeks before its launch by visiting the East Midlands Trains website.
