Signalling problems continue tonightJuly 30, 2013
Trains have been running again today but continue to be subject to delay.
Network Rail are planning a repeat of last night’s closure with trains after 21.15 being replaced by buses – check National Rail Enquiries if you are planning to travel this evening.
The National Rail page about the problem states:
Over-running engineering works are causing disruption at Atherton.
Because of this, trains between Salford Crescent and Wigan Wallgate may be delayed by up to 20 minutes. These delays will continue for the rest of the day. A normal service is expected to resume from start of service on Wednesday 31 July.
