[N]orthern is calling on customers in the north west to plan carefully ahead of possible disruption on Sunday (15 July).
Due to some train crew having made themselves unavailable to work, Northern will be running an amended timetable across much of the north west of England with many services in Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester, likely to be cancelled. Some services in Yorkshire will also be affected.
Liam Sumpter, Regional Director for Northern, said: “Unfortunately many of our staff have made themselves unavailable for work on Sunday. Our operational teams are currently working on a plan to make the best use of those staff who are available and to run as many services as possible. It is, however, inevitable that many services will be cancelled.”
Northern customers are advised to plan carefully for any travel on Sunday and should check the Northern website and National Rail Enquiries for the most up-to-date information.
Liam added: “We are very sorry for any disruption to our customers’ journeys and can assure those looking to use Northern services that we are doing everything we can to keep people on the move.
“We are still working on our plans for Sunday and will release further details of which services and routes are affected as soon as possible.”
