London Midland trains are disrupted after a signal failure.

The London Midland service will leave Milton Keynes Central at 6.43am and arrive into London Euston at 7.45am. This train had previously been cancelled due to overnight engineering works in the Milton Keynes area.

Steve Helfet, London Midland’s head of West Coast services, said “I am delighted that London Midland has been able to work with Network Rail to shorten engineering work and operate a train service earlier than previously planned on Sunday.

“This will make it easier and more convenient for runners and their supporters to get to the London Marathon. We’ve worked hard to do this, so that we can make the day as simple and stress-free as possible for our customers.”

When the trains will depart each station:

Milton Keynes Central: 6.43am

Bletchley: 6.48am

Leighton Buzzard: 6.55am

Berkhamsted: 7.09am

Hemel Hempstead: 7.14am

Apsley: 7.17am

Kings Langley: 7.20am

Watford Junction: 7.25am

Harrow and Wealdstone: 7.31am

London Euston: 7.45am
