It is planned to gradually increase the number of train services over the spring starting with additional peak-time services.

Passengers travelling by rail replacement bus should buy tickets from any staffed station or the ticket vending machines at unstaffed stations before travel.

Stephen Sleight, Marston Vale community rail partnership officer, said: “I am pleased to welcome passengers back to the Marston Vale Line next week after a time without rail services.
