Rail disruption

More work is taking place around Stafford area as part of Network Rail’s 250m Stafford Area Improvements Programme. As a result London Midland trains travelling between Crewe and London will not be stopping at Stone or Stafford and a rail replacement bus service will connect passengers from those stations to Stoke-on-Trent train station.
