EMR is also piloting a new scheme to use some of its Class 170 trains to provide additional capacity on its Norwich - Liverpool route - targeting specific times and services which are currently popular with its customers.

Will Rogers, Managing Director for East Midlands Railway, said: “We are always looking at ways we can better match the timetable we operate with the journeys our customers want to make.

"But any changes need to take in a number of factors, including the allocation of necessary funding, maintaining levels of performance (punctuality) and operational feasibility.

"We are delighted to be able to provide a boost in services for our regional customers from December. The increase represents the culmination of substantial work to make sure they can be increased or reintroduced reliably and sustainably.

"We are also looking forward to seeing how the trial of our Class 170 trains, and the extra capacity they will afford, is received by our customers on the Norwich - Liverpool line. That route continues to be very popular and we have picked specific times we know our customers want to travel at."
