London Midland cuts carriages on trains passing through Watford, Bushey and Kings Langley stations
Busy commuter trains passing through Watford, Bushey and Kings Langley stations will have fewer carriages this month.
Following a recruitment campaign, London Midland needs to make some services available for the training of 61 new drivers.
Services between Milton Keynes and London will be affected but the train operator has said it has tried to minimise this to no more than two peak time trains in each direction.
The training will be running on weekdays until August 23.
Tom Joyner, operations director at London Midland, said: "Our new drivers need to learn about the trains they will be responsible for.
"To do this we have chosen the quietest time of the year to take some carriages out of service.
"While it does mean, regrettably, some passengers may find it harder to find a seat on some busy trains this month all passengers will benefit from us having extra drivers available later this year."
