Train timetable changes

Today, 23 August

Refurbishment of Selby Swing Bridge from Sunday 27 July until Sunday 7 September 2014

Selby Swing Bridge was built in 1889 and carries the railway over the River Ouse.

Between Sunday 27 July and Sunday 07 September 2014, Network Rail will be carrying out refurbishment work on the bridge costing £8 million pounds. Once the work is completed the structure should be maintenance free for 25 years and will enable trains to run at the normal line speed, removing a long standing speed restriction.

During this period of time no trains will be able to run between Selby and Hull.

First TransPennine and Northern Rail services are replaced by buses between Selby and Hull.

East Coast services are diverted between Doncaster and Hull via Goole. Buses will run between Doncaster and Selby.

First Hull Trains services are diverted between Doncaster and Hull calling additionally at Goole. Buses will run between Selby and  Howden / Goole.

Saturday 23 August - Alcohol free trains

Please be aware that East Coast services from London King's Cross including and after 18.30 on this day will be subject to alcohol restrictions due to events taking place. This means you will not be able to bring alcohol in any form, onto the train, or consume it whilst on board. We won’t be selling alcohol at The Foodbar, though other hot and cold refreshments will still be available as usual.

Unfortunately we’ve introduced this policy due to some recent anti-social behaviour on this service, to ensure that all of our customers can enjoy a more pleasant journey. On the day the British Transport Police, will be enforcing this alcohol ban at the station(s) and on board the train. 

East Coast have prohibited the possession of intoxicating liquor from the above mentioned train services.

It is an offence under Byelaw 4(2) of the Railway Byelaws, for any person travelling on the services listed above to be in possession of intoxicating liquor or to attempt to enter any of the above trains with intoxicating liquor.
