Changes To Northern Rail train times across North West

There will be significant changes to some Northern Rail services with the introduction of a new industry timetable from Sunday 18 May 2014.

Northern, a Serco and Abellio joint venture, will see the times of many of its services change, due to the revision of long distance operators’ service structure.

In some cases this is just by a few minutes but for other services it may be more, so customers are reminded to check revised timetables before they travel.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Northern Rail comments: “The rail network across the north of England is benefitting from the biggest investment since Victorian times. From station improvements to electrification and new track such as the Todmorden Curve, this work is starting to deliver more capacity and faster, more reliable journeys for customers across the north.

“With the May timetable change these benefits begin to take shape with more services across the electrification of routes in the North West. To help deliver these improvements for the long term, we also need to revise the times of some of our local services so we are asking customers to check times before they travel.”
