TOC(s) affected

The RMT trade union is currently in dispute with Northern over proposed changes to the role of the conductor. As a result of this, industrial action will be taken on Monday 26 and Thursday 29 March.

On strike days Northern is only able to operate a limited service. On weekday strikes, the majority of available trains typically operate between 7am and 7pm, with many last trains leaving before 7pm. During these hours, the overall number of trains running are significantly reduced, with around 50 per cent of the usual number of services in operation. These trains, and any replacement buses, are usually very busy. Therefore customers are advised to carefully consider whether their journey is necessary.

As details of how services will be affected on strike days are not yet available, the National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner is not yet showing the strike day timetables. Please keep checking here for updates. We will publish more information as soon as it becomes available.
