Northern run Xmas relief trains via Walkden

December 22, 2013

We would have blogged this news in advance but we didn’t know Northern were going to do it … yesterday 4 extra trains ran on the Walkden line to relieve the strain on over-crowded scheduled services.

We don’t know how they managed to find extra coaches (perhaps deferring some weekend maintenance ?) but credit to whoever organised the initiative as it made a far more pleasant journey home from town for hundreds of passengers yesterday.

Well done Northern ! Just a bit more publicity next time ?
