East Midlands Railway has announced it has reinstated a full weekday Intercity timetable and significantly increased its Sunday regional services.

The full intercity weekday timetable has been reinstated with an increase of eight services, while 33 Sunday regional services have also been reintroduced.

EMR has been able to make the changes due to the steady improvements in the number of Covid-related staff absences, and the formal resolution of a dispute with the RMT union in relation to the industrial action taken over numerous Sundays affecting EMR Regional services.

Paul Barnfield, operations director at EMR, said: “We are pleased to be able to reintroduce services to our network.

“This is a positive step in the right direction and is made possible by the continued decline in Covid-related staff absences and the resolution of industrial disputes.”
