Winter timetable up and runningDecember 3, 2011
The winter timetable started on Monday 12th and is effective through until 13th May next year. It’s available from the station or online here.
A quick look through suggests the times are simply reverting back to the pre-Autumn timetable schedule – but please check your own train before travelling !
One bit of bad news contained in the timetable is the return of the dreaded bus replacements on Sundays from 8 January to 12 February 😦
The timetable brochure has had a bit of a design makeover – the first in several years – and has a logo advertising “600 more seats every day at peak times on this route“. This probably needs a bit of small print to explain … not all of the seats will be on Walkden services as the timetable also includes trains from Bolton to Manchester. Details of the trains receiving the extra seats were covered on our blog recently.
