Extra Walkden trains added to the autumn timetable

October 7, 2015

Some great news about several extra services included in the timetable that started this week:

  • Mon-Fri: there is now a 2238 direct from Manchester Piccadilly to Walkden. This runs in addition to the 2245 and 2320 departures from Victoria
  • Saturdays: Every hour one of the Southport-Manchester Airport trains diverted via Walkden because of the Farnworth tunnel works will be making a stop at Walkden, meaning there’s now a third train per hour to/from Manchester on Saturdays. This is probably the highest ever frequency of service that Walkden has enjoyed

Needless to say these are very welcome additions to our service and – even if they only turn out to be temporary while the Farnworth diversions are in place – we’re sure people will be only too pleased to take advantage of the extra seats and directly served destinations
