A railway company has canceled all Saturday services on its only route because all trains are broken.

Hull Trains – who drive from the city to London – said the fault was due to "more trains than usual that need to be repaired at the same time."

His vehicle fleet was already reduced on 5 October after an on-fire in Grantham.

The company apologized and advised passengers to check their website.

On Monday, the company said that the disruption to the timetable would end due to the fire before the weekend.

Louise Cheeseman, managing director of Hull Train, said earlier this week that the company's trains were 18 years old and would travel 1,000 miles a day.

The trains were "a bit older and needed more TLC" and "unfortunately parts of them fail," she added.

Craig Johnson, of the RMT Union, said, "Errors and breaks happen, but losing all your train units and canceling all your services is a pretty disastrous state of affairs."

Emma Hardy, Labor MP for Hull West, said earlier that the trains were "not fit for purpose".

With a full-service offering, the company runs 92 services to London each week.

The cancellations are in line with further strike action by RMT Union, with operator Northern operating about 30% of its usual services from Cumbria, Merseyside, Yorkshire, northeast Lincolnshire.

Hull Trains will launch a new fleet in 2019, but previously the company had to "focus on maintaining our trains," said Ms. Cheesman.
