Lincolnshire freight network vital to coronavirus fight, says Network Rail
Reduced passenger services has allowed Lincolnshire's rail network to carry more than 150,000 tonnes of food, medical supplies and other goods around the county, according to Network Rail.
The transport body also assured key workers in the NHS, food industry, education and communications sectors that "a reliable service would remain in operation to get them to work" as freight trains continue to run and help meet demand across the county.
Rail operators are running an emergency passenger timetable so that only essential journeys can be made.
