A new station has recently opened in Corby to provide a direct service into London for the first time in 43 years. Corby has not had a station since the 1990's and the new station has been eagerly awaited. The station has cost £17 million to build and should be running one train per hour into London, however due to a shortage of rolling stock there are not currently enough trains to operate the station to full capacity. This means that until more trains can be found there will only be one service per day from the new station. To run to full capacity the operator East Midlands Trains needs three trains but it currently only has one. It is hoping to have an hourly service up and running by April.
