NB: Wembley has been informed that for this event the first available train arrives in to London’s Kings Cross 45 minutes prior to kick off as a result of track inspections. Network Rail and the TOCs have worked on a number of plans and will now provide the following:
– Two additional trains to London Saturday afternoon because all existing services are fully booked (not normally the case).
– For Sunday morning the two TOCs are going to provide 5 additional trains (carrying circa 3,000 fans) that will get to Kings Cross before 1pm; and they are looking to run the existing train in a bit earlier to give more time for fans to get to the Stadium.
– On the return journey, there are rail engineering works that will prevent the additional trains getting all the way back to Sunderland. In discussion with the Police they are arranging a transfer to buses at Durham station (to avoid Newcastle) to complete the journey.
