Northern to add extra capacity on Harrogate trains

The new Northern timetable is set to be introduced this week.

Train services across the region will switch to a new timetable from Sunday (2nd June) - and it's good news for Harrogate rail users.

The new timetable, which was announced earlier this month, will see Northern continue to operate nearly 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.

And changes will see extra capacity on services from Leeds to Harrogate and York.

There will also be additional stops and extra capacity on some services from Leeds to Skipton and stations in Cumbria.

Matt Rice, chief operating officer at Northern, said:

“The vast majority of services are unaffected by the change, but there are a small number of services that have been re-timed.

“Customers should use the ‘Check My Timetable’ tool on the Northern website to see the changes that affect their local station.”

In the Calder Valley, more services will stop at Sowerby Bridge, Mytholmroyd and Low Moor.

Meanwhile, there will be a reduction in capacity on services between Sheffield and Huddersfield whilst engineering work takes place.
