Due to a landslip west of Scunthorpe, First Transpennine Express services are currently being replaced by buses between Doncaster and Scunthorpe. Truncated train services operate Cleethorpes - Scunthorpes and Doncaster - Manchester. Normal services are currently expected to resume on Wednesday 24th June.


Until close of service today, Wednesday 17th June 2020, Northern Train services will run with delay between Doncaster and Scunthorpe, using single line working arrangements through the affected area. These services will cease  at the end of today to allow both lines to be closed, which is necessary for the repairs to be completed.
