The Churnet Valley Railway has announced that their trains today have been suspended as a result of the weather.

The suspension of train services today in Staffordshire is due to the dangerous rise in the canal water level. There has also been a breach in the banks of the canal south of Conall. This means the railway can’t operate their services safely today.

The heritage railway is monitoring the situation and will be releasing updates shortly.

The railway was due to operate their Super Power Saturday today, with three S160s in operation, with visitor 2253 Omaha running alongside 6046 and 5197.

If we receive any updates, we will update this page to let you know!
