It was with great sorrow and sadness that we heard about the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who has sadly passed away. Our condolences and thoughts are with the Royal Family during this difficult time.

Today the Railway will remember Her Majesty The Queen with the rest of the nation. But above all, it is a chance to give thanks for her remarkable dedication to duty.

Her Majesty The Queen had a long tradition of supporting Britain’s railways during her 70-year reign. Thank you, Ma’am.

Passengers who have already pre-booked tickets and wish to transfer due to the passing of Her Majesty can do this by contacting Customer Services on [email protected]

The NYMR will be closed on Monday 19 September, the day of Her Majesty the Queen’s state funeral, as a mark of respect. If you have a booking with us for this day, we will be in touch shortly. The NYMR will remain open on all other dates.
