This route takes in the North East, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, parts of Cambridgeshire and the whole of the East Midlands
The London North Eastern and East Midlands route (LNE&EM) runs from the Scottish Borders to London St Pancras, connecting major towns and cities in the North, North East and East Midlands.
Its central location makes it important for cross-country and long-distance north-south and east-west travel.
Passenger numbers are growing rapidly across the route, and are expected to increase by 30 per cent at Leicester, Derby and Nottingham by 2023. Ongoing work in the route to boost network capacity includes junction improvements, additional track, and train lengthening schemes, all as part of the national Railway Upgrade Plan.
Main railway lines:
- the Midland Mainline from Sheffield to London St Pancras
- the East Coast Mainline from the Scottish border to London King’s Cross station
We work closely with local communities to promote safety by the railway. Find out more on our community safety page.
