Severe disruption to train services due to 'signalling fault' between Marsden and Huddersfield
Five trains scheduled to depart from Scarborough have so far been cancelled today.
The 06.42, 08.45, 10.41 and 11.41 TransPennine Express services to Liverpool Lime Street have all been affected by a "signalling fault" between Marsden and Huddersfield.
The 16.44 service has also been cancelled between Scarborough and York.
A spokesperson for TransPennine Express said: “Loss of signalling between Marsden and Huddersfield earlier this morning led to severe disruption for our customers today. Our colleagues at Network Rail managed to repair the signalling fault but due to the knock-on effect this has had, disruption is likely to continue for at least the next few hours and we would advise all customers to check before they travel.”
Today's disruption adds to weeks of continuous delays and cancellations impacting the journey of thousands of passengers travelling to and from the Yorkshire coast.
On Saturday, a total of 10 services schedule to depart from Scarborough were either cancelled or pulled halfway through the journey. This was due to a shortage of train drivers.
