Northern Rail September strike action
30 Aug 2017
Northern Rail has issued service information ahead of September RMT strike action
Northern has issued further timetable information for customers travelling in the Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside, Lancashire and Cumbria areas during RMT strike action on Friday, 1 and Monday, 4 September.
Northern expects to run over 900 train services on both strike days between 7am and 7pm, with final services on some routes finishing before 7pm.
Trains are expected to be extremely busy, journeys may take longer than normal and connections to other services may not be available.
Northern is advising customers to consider whether their journey is necessary and to recheck services before travelling, especially in the Bolton area where there is ongoing disruption to train services due to bridge repairs at Moses Gate.
Strike action is also taking place on Merseyrail at the same time as Northern.
