Due to heavy snow and extreme weather conditions across the country, Virgin Trains East Coast (VTEC) is advising customers not to travel on Friday 2nd March.
VTEC will be running one train in either direction per hour on the following routes:
London King’s Cross to Newcastle
London King’s Cross to Leeds
VTEC will be running one train in either direction every two hours (in alternate hours) on the following routes:
London King’s Cross to Newark Northgate
London King’s Cross to York
VTEC is unable to provide any train services north of Newcastle as the line is blocked with snow and will not be offering replacement bus services due to the hazardous driving conditions.
Ticket restrictions have been lifted, meaning that passengers with pre-booked tickets may travel on any VTEC service today at no extra cost. Those who prefer to postpone travel will also be able to use their tickets up until Wednesday 7th March.
Any customers booked on a VTEC service between Wednesday 28th February and Friday 2nd March will be entitled to a full refund.
