East Midlands Trains passengers will benefit from improved services with the introduction of its new winter timetable, the firm has said.
The Sheffield to London service, which passes through Derby and Leicester, will now have two trains per hour instead of one.
An hourly service will be available to the East Midlands Parkway station at Ratcliffe on Soar.
The new timetable comes into operation on Sunday.
A Sunday service from Bulwell to Nottingham will also begin as part of the changes.
Tim Shoveller, managing director of East Midlands Trains said: "The new Sheffield services will provide Leicester, Loughborough and Long Eaton with hourly direct services to and from Sheffield, making it easier for people to travel to do business or go on shopping trips within the East Midlands and South Yorkshire regions.
"This new timetable also provides better services to passengers in villages such as Aslockton, Cromford, Whatstandwell and Bulwell - demonstrating our commitment to providing continued improvements to the communities we serve throughout our regions."
