Taylor Swift fans are fuming after Chiltern Railways announced it wouldn't be stopping at Wembley Stadium this weekend (Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23).

This is because there will be no direct service from Euston to Birmingham New Street due to unrelated engineering works. As a result, Chiltern Railways is running extra trains between Birmingham Moor Street and Marylebone.

As a result, none of Chiltern Railways trains stopping at Wembley Stadium station will be going ahead.

The rail company wrote on Facebook: "We’re sorry we will not be stopping at Wembley Stadium for the Taylor Swift concerts on 22 & 23 June. We're carrying additional customers due to Network Rail engineering works between Birmingham & London Euston so sadly can't also support the concerts. We will be open on 21 June."

People slammed Chiltern Railways in the comments. Florin wrote: "In civilised countries, the national railway would supplement the number of trains on special occasions. In UK: we won't stop there."

Catherine wrote: "This is so embarrassing - cities all around the globe have welcomed the TS concerts as a boost to their economy, and given the fans a safe, enjoyable time. London treats them as an inconvenience and makes it as difficult as possible to get there and back safely, either by train or by car. The Tube won't be able to cope with 100,000 fans without the overground as a backup."

Gemma said: "Erm…. So for a football match you will stop there. For a concert with mainly women going to it….. you don’t. Brilliant!"

Joanne said: "Pretty shocking when it has a major event on at Wembley. Think we are probably the only country that stops trains rather than add extra services/carriages! Feel sorry for people that have planned for months to use that line!"

National Rail has also warned these services connecting the Midlands and London will be extremely busy as Swifties travel to see the global superstar perform in Wembley.

No trains will call at Kings Sutton, Hatton and Lapworth on the route to London, and there also won't be a service between Marylebone and Aylesbury Vale Parkway (via Amersham) all day. Rail replacement buses are available.
