National and local rail services in Nottinghamshire are running as normal again this morning after a weekend of disruption due to flooding caused by the impact of Storm Babet.

Eat Midlands Railway’s (EMR)’s website reports services on the Robin Hood Line between Nottingham and Worksop, which serves Mansfield, Bulwell, Hucknall, Newstead, Kirkby, Sutton, Shireoaks and Creswell, are now running full through to Worksop again, after services were suspended between Mansfield Woodhouse and Worksop throughout the weekend.

Mainline services between Nottingham and London that were affected by flooding and a subsequent landslip, are now running again, as are services between Sheffield and London that run through Chesterfield and Derby after a weekend where the route was suspended much of the time.

EMR said: “Over the weekend there was significant damage to railway infrastructure, with track and signalling cables underwater and damage caused by the flow of water. Network Rail have had teams out across our routes inspecting the damage, and carrying out essential repairs.

“If you were affected by the route closures over the weekend your EMR tickets for October 20, 21 and 22 will be accepted on EMR services until the end of Tuesday, October 24.

“We expect that services will be extremely busy once we are able to run normally.

"We do advise that you continue to check before travelling, and allow extra time to complete your journey.”

Tram operator Nottingham Express Transit (NET) reports that tram services between Hucknall, Bulwell and Nottingham are running as normal but there is currently no service between Old Market Square and Nottingham Station due to track works, and no tram service between Southchurch Drive and Wilford Lane due to heavy flooding.
