Trains on Sunday - Ely to Peterbough

I'm looking at the National Rail Enquiries site, looking for trains from Ely to Peterbough on Sunday morning, 15 September. The NRE site shows no trains on Sunday morning. Is this correct? Thanks for your help. -katie

It looks to be correct - there are buses running instead of trains and they start later than a normal Sunday

I'm amazed and slightly horrified. I'm so glad I checked this. I'm using trains for a 3 week journey, now I expect I should go back and verify train times on each trip. Is this unusual? Thanks. -katie

Sunday is when essential engineering is done, so sometimes trains will be replaced by buses on Sunday. It's always worth double-checking Sunday services. It's annoying, but I guess maintenance has to be carried out somehow.

The buses will get you where you're going, but they're always much slower

Lots of engineering work is done on a Sunday so as to not inconvenience commuters, its a pain, they nearly always lay on buses, but they are slower.

National Express might have coaches from Ely to Peterborough on Sundays.

Um - no. They don't serve Ely at all. Ever.

It's unusual (though not unknown) for engineering work to result in reschedules once the original schedules have been announced.
