will operate an amended timetable on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June.

Planned engineering work will be taking place on the route between and Birmingham New Street, so the operator will run more (and longer) trains between London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street, while there will be no service to some stations on the Chiltern Railways route.

Service alterations

Chiltern Railways will run an enhanced service on both days between Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street, with longer and some extra trains.

Nevertheless, the operator expects the trains to be much busier than usual.

The operator has explained that it is not possible to run this enhanced service and still call at Wembley Stadium station, so this station will remain closed for the whole weekend.

Chiltern has apologised for the inconvenience this will cause.
