“Unfortunately, customers travelling immediately before and after the Christmas bank holidays should expect disruption. “This is due to limited train crew availability in some areas. We strongly advise customers to ‘check before you travel’ on those days.”
In addition to the travel advice calendar, customers are reminded that rail timetables across the North of England changed on Sunday 10 December in line with the rest of the National Rail network. Customers are encouraged to use the ‘Check My Timetable’ feature on the Northern website for more information about their local station. Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
