Bus replacements on FIRST and LAST trains next week

February 4, 2012

Please note that there is an extra element of disruption to the engineering work planned by Network Rail next week: the last trains to Wigan and Manchester are replaced by buses Mon-Thu as happens every few weeks, but unusually the first train of the day to Manchester (the 0624) is also replaced by a bus next Tuesday to Friday. The replacement bus leaves Walkden considerably earlier (0609) because it takes longer than the train to reach Manchester.

It is likely the second train of the day – the 0654 – will be busier than usual as a result of displaced passengers from the eal

For details of the bus times, see the special notice on Northern Rail’s website.

The usual warnings about bus replacements apply: journeys are slower, the buses have no toilets, and will not carry bicycles, non-folding prams, wheelchairs  etc.
