Xmas and New Year service changes

December 24, 2013

There are significant changes to the regular train service from Walkden over the Xmas and New Year period.

As usual, there will be no trains at all on Xmas Day or Boxing Day.

Services finish early (around 8pm) on Christmas Eve and start later than normal on Friday 28th.

From Friday 28th Dec until Jan 1st no trains will run in to or out of Manchester Victoria. Network Rail are performing major engineering works as part of the northwest electrification programme, including”wiring up” the tracks through Victoria and lowering the tracks under Cheetham Hill Road bridge to make room for overhead wires.

During this period trains to/from Walkden will run to Salford Crescent and then either terminate at Salford Central or Oxford Road (some people might consider this an improved service !). Bus replacements will be available to ferry passengers between Salford Central and Manchester Victoria.
