Northern to operate amended Sunday timetable

Northern has released details of an amended timetable for Sunday 5 April.

The impact of coronavirus continues to be felt across the rail industry and, in response to this, Northern has had to reduce the number of services if operates on Sundays.

Those trains which are still running are intended to help key workers get where they need to be at the weekend.

Only essential journeys should be made and anyone travelling for any other reason may be challenged by colleagues from British Transport Police.

Where trains are not running, Northern is still working to provide rail replacement coaches, but this may not be possible on all routes.

Details of the routes that will have rail services are below and anyone planning to travel should check National Rail Enquiries for timings.
