Realtime Trains have timings for 11th August service
0930 1Z44 York-Carlisle http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U55319/2019/08/11/advanced

1640 1Z47 Carlisle-York
http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/U55322/2019/08/11/advanced

The 18th, 25th August and 8th September services all have the same booked times.  Looks like Network Rail allocated fixed specific train paths for York-Leeds and v.v. steam specials used on an as required basis, because Flying Scotsman's special also ran to those times earlier this month.

ECML shut off ......

First closure of the East Coast Main Line is coming

******

Network Rail and train operators are reminding passengers of major changes to services this August Bank Holiday.

In just over a month, work will take place along the southern end of the route, including in Newark, Stevenage and around London King’s Cross station.

This work will close the lines from Peterborough and Cambridge into London King’s Cross and London St Pancras International meaning no trains will run on this portion of the line.


Passengers are being reminded that there will be significant disruption and are urged not to travel on services which start or terminate in the capital on 24/25 August.

Instead, the advice is to travel on either Friday, 23 or Tuesday, 27 August.

There will be a heavily reduced service on Monday, 26 August as work at Newark continues, with trains expected to be extremely busy.

The East Coast Upgrade is the biggest investment into the line in a generation and will bring significant benefits for all users of the route.

It will also mean more services able to run, increasing choice for passengers. Over the August Bank Holiday, a huge amount of work will take place, including :

At London King’s Cross, Network Rail will transfer control of signalling equipment from King’s Cross signal box to a state of the art facility in York. This will create a more modern and reliable railway, which is more resilient in times of disruption and work will be carried out on the overhead line equipment outside of the station to support improvements to the power supply, track layout and signals.


In Stevenage, work will continue on a major project to construct an additional platform to support increased services along the route.


Network Rail is renewing a level crossing in Newark which is of unique design and historically, has had to be renewed every 15-20 years. Engineers will replace timbers with a more durable material, which will provide a more reliable railway and greatly reduce the amount of times we need to carry out work in the future.
