You’re welcome to bring luggage on board any of our trains and we run regular trains to Manchester Airport and major connecting destinations.
Luggage racks are available on all trains and are ideal for storing larger bags
Overhead racks above your seat are perfect for cabin bags and smaller items
Don’t block aisles or doorways with your bags and please don’t place them on the seat next to you or in the designated wheelchair areas
Keep your luggage in sight at all times and remember to take it with you when you leave the train (although we do have a lost property service for when mistakes happen!)
Never leave luggage or personal items unattended at stations. Unattended items will be removed without warning and may be damaged or destroyed
You’re free to travel with buggies and prams on any of our trains and we look forward to welcoming mini passengers on board for their first railway adventure!
There are 2 places to store your buggy on board:
Designated wheelchair area – you may store your pram or buggy here unless it is needed by wheelchair users. Even if there is space when you start your journey and a wheelchair user subsequently boards, you must give them priority access
Luggage or overhead racks – particularly on busy services, please fold your pram or buggy down and store in the luggage or overhead racks available, making sure that doorways and aisles remain clear
View our train seating plans for more information.
If your perfect travel companion has 4 legs rather than 2, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can travel on board our trains with your pet – free of charge.
You can bring up to 2 dogs on the train and they must be kept on a lead for the duration of the journey
Smaller animals must be kept in a pet carrier
Pets must not sit on tables or seats – we ask this for the comfort of other passengers travelling without pets
Guide and hearing dogs are welcome on board too and staff will be happy to support you if you need assistance
If you need travel assistance, let us know in advance and we'll be happy to help.
