    London/Corby/Nottingham/Sheffield offer an at seat service of high quality refreshments, snacks and hot meals during the week in Standard. During the weekends, there is a buffet service for Standard and First.

    Liverpool - Noriwch has a trolley servce far east as Peterborough.

    Selected summer Skegness services have a trolley service.

    Interesting, EMT's own website suggested a trolley was available only to Nottingham on Liverpool-Norwich.

    I traveled between Peterborough and Nottingham/Sheffield/Manchester on EMT last year about 5 or 6 times - and can't recall a trolley service until AFTER Nottingham.

    And definitely NOT one coming back AFTER Nottingham as they were all JAM PACKED 2-car trains!!!

    Peterborough to Liverpool on most services and Peterborough to Stockport on Sundays (some trolleys start and finish at Nottingham or Sheffield to/from either direction as that's where the catering service centres are).

    Yes, that's what I meant Liverpool-Nottingham only.

    I have never seen catering outside of the MML services and then hit and miss!

    A trolley operates on many daytime services as far east as Peterborough on the Norwich/Liverpool route when it's convenient to operate from their base.
