More Nova 3 TransPennine Trains For Scarborough

More Nova 3 TransPennine Trains For Scarborough

Scarborough has two more TransPennine Express train services in operation.

Commuters will now see a total of four of its Nova 3 fleet going to and from the coast.

It is after the national timetable change over the weekend.

The new trains will be maintained at the new depot in Scarborough.

Nick Sworowski, Depot and Infrastructure Manager at TransPennine Express, said:

"So the first train in the morning is at 6am, so that's a relatively new service that's come into effect.

The later service arrives, I believe, coming back into Scarborough at around 11.30pm. 

It does mean, hopefully, that trains will be on time.

Between December and May, we'll introduce more trains between that period.

So I believe that the current plan is seven trains around the mid-February point and then the full compliment of all the trains in for the May timetable change."

Following the timetable changes, people on Twitter have said their trains to and from Scarborough today have been cancelled.

Leo Goodwin, Managing Director for TransPennine Express said:

“I am really sorry for the disruption to our customers journeys.

I know what a busy time it is whether people are trying to get to work, trying to get home to see school plays, visiting loved ones or trying to go out and enjoy their Christmas parties.

“Due to a number of issues with crew training caused by the late delivery of some of our new trains, along with a maintenance backlog and some infrastructure issues we have had to implement a temporary timetable, cancelling some journeys along one of our routes.  

This has unfortunately made a number of other services a lot busier.  

We are working really hard to sort this for our customers and as we introduce more new trains we should see an improvement to people’s journeys.”

On several days recently the last trains from Scarborough or York has been shown as being cancelled. Has anyone been affected by this. If so, what happens? For example is a bus provided? Taxi? Money to stay in a hotel?
