Marylebone Line - Open Tomorrow

Cable Damage Marylebone

1:23pm 16th June 2014
(Updated 5:10pm 16th June 2014)

Chiltern Railways say that Marylebone station will remain shut tonight - but is likely to re-open on Tuesday after Sunday's cable fire in a tunnel near the London terminus.

Around two metres of signalling cable in the tunnel into the station has burned away meaning the signalling system is not working.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "Without signals we cannot safely run trains, so are not running to or from Marylebone until new cables are installed and tested.
 
Engineers are on site however, disruption is expected until the end of Monday and Marylebone station will remain closed until further notice.
 
Passengers are advised to avoid travelling unless essential."

Monday update 5pm

Chiltern Railways say "We are only able to run a limited service today on both our lines and as a result the trains we are running will be incredibly busy. This is because we will be able to run far fewer trains as we will be turning round at stations which have two platforms instead of at Marylebone which has six.  If you can avoid travelling we advise that you make alternative arrangements.

Harrow on the Hill – Amersham – Aylesbury –Aylesbury Vale Parkway

We are running two trains an hour to/from Harrow on the Hill and Aylesbury (with one per hour going to Aylesbury Vale Parkway).  Passengers are advised to travel on the Metropolitan Line to Baker Street which is a few minutes walk from Marylebone.

West Ruislip –High Wycombe – Banbury – Birmingham – Kidderminster

Passengers are advised to travel on the Central Line between West Ruislip and Central London and then change at Oxford Circus on the Bakerloo line to reach London Marylebone.

We are running:  
•    One train per hour to/from Gerrards Cross, probably from Wembley Stadium
•    One train per hour to/from either High Wycombe or Princes Risborough
•    Two trains per hour to/from Birmingham

Chiltern tickets will be valid on the normal Central line tube trains to/from Central London. To reach Marylebone, change at Oxford Circus onto the Bakerloo line northbound.  

Please note, we will provide a shuttle train service between Leamington Spa and Stratford upon Avon and if possible, a service further.  

Using Chiltern tickets on other train operators’ services

Your Chiltern ticket is valid on Virgin Trains, London Midland, First Great Western, CrossCountry and London Underground services on Monday until further notice.

If travelling to/from Birmingham, we recommend using Virgin Trains or London Midland if at all possible between Birmingham New Street at London Euston.

Your Chiltern ticket will be valid. 

If travelling from Banbury to London, we advise travelling to Reading with CrossCountry and then boarding First Great Western services to Paddington.

Network Rail the prospects for Tuesday are now looking very good with engineers expected to open all lines by first trains on Tuesday morning.
