Rail services to London St Pancras back to normal after derailment at Barrow
East Midlands Trains services to London St Pancras will be back to normal tomorrow after a freight train derailment at Barrow on Soar.
However, East Midlands Trains said lines between Leicester and Loughborough will be closed from 11pm tonight until 11am tomorrow as work continues at the site.
Services to and from London St Pancras were expected to run as normal from 11am tomorrow (January 1).
Network Rail has been involved in a complicated operation to sort the aftermath of the incident on Thursday at Barrow. Seven derailed wagons that were carrying a cargo of stone had to be removed.

Further work at the site means train services will be unable to call at Barrow until further notice. A replacement bus service will remain in operation between Barrow and Loughborough to connect with train services.
A spokesperson for East Midlands Trains said: "We would like to apologise to our passengers for the inconvenience our revised timetable may have caused over the past few days. However, it was essential that Network Rail had full access to the line to allow them to make progress on the work that needs to be completed before all services can return to normal.”
"From 11am tomorrow, we expect that our full timetable to and from London St Pancras will be reinstated, although unfortunately services will not be able to call at Barrow until further work has been carried out by Network Rail. As soon as we are advised that this work has been completed, we will restore train services for passengers in Barrow."
Details of the amended East Midlands Trains services running tonight are below:
• Trains between Nottingham and London St Pancras International will either be cancelled or will only run between Leicester and London St Pancras International.
• Trains between Leicester and Lincoln Central will either be cancelled or will only run between Loughborough and Lincoln Central.
