Industrial action by members of the RMT Union is taking place every Saturday in November and December.

On strike days, Northern will run a reduced service, with very few trains operating before 09:00 and after 18:00.  Some stations may not receive any service. Trains which do run are expected to be extremely busy and replacement buses may only be available on some specific routes where there are no trains.

Details of how your specific station will be affected, and answers to frequently asked questions, can be found here and a statement from Northern can be found here.
