Autumn timetable Changes

Revised North Trans-Pennine route timetable
23 October to 08 December 2017

We understand how frustrating travel delays can be for you and the importance of providing a punctual, reliable service.

Following our experience during previous autumn leaf-fall seasons and the challenges it placed on our ability to deliver our advertised timetable, this year we've again made a small number of changes to our North Trans-Pennine route timetable to help keep trains running on time.

A slightly revised Monday to Friday timetable will operate on this route from Monday 23 October until Friday 08 December 2017.
