The article reports on the addition of four-car services operated by East Midlands Trains (EMT) to the Nottingham-Liverpool, England route. In November 2007, the British Department for Transport (DfT) has specified that EMT, a train-operating company, would only operate two-car Class 158 sets on this route. One problem encountered by the company was overcrowding on half the services, which was not limited to peak time.
