“Leaf-fall” timetable started this week

October 8, 2011

This week saw the introduction of the Autumn “leaf-fall” timetable: a modified schedule running from October until December 10th and allowing slightly longer train times to compensate for trains running slower on sections of track that are covered by slippery, wet, fallen leaves.

For travellers from Walkden the main impacts are:

          • many, but not all, trains to Manchester are re-timed to leave Walkden 2 minutes earlier (eg the 10.20 now leaves at 10.18)
          • most trains to Wigan leave Walkden at the same time as before but arrive at their final destination (Wigan, Kirby etc) 2 minutes later
Please take care to check your train’s departure time at National Rail website, or download the new timetable here.
