Late night bus replacement this weekMay 24, 2010
The last train out from Victoria (the 23.20) is replaced by a bus each evening from today until Thursday.
The usual warnings about the bus being slower and lacking toilets, cycle space etc apply.
There is an upside … FOWS understand the reason the line is closed to trains late at night is partly to allow pigeon netting to be installed in the canopy at Walkden. If this is the case the bus will be a temporary annoyance that is well worth putting up with.
Only the last Wigan bound train of each evening is affected by bus replacement – all other services are due to run normally.
