There’s going to be another strike affecting Northern Rail, this time on Saturday 3rd March.
This time round, Northern will be providing an hourly train service calling at all stations between Stalybridge and Huddersfield, broadly between 0800 & 1700. So at least there won’t be a repeat of the replacement bus stop debacle.
Change at Stalybridge for Piccadilly. Stalybridge to Victoria was going to be closed for engineering works over that weekend anyway.
Update 26/02/2018: The timetables are now Northern’s website at https://be803fe5c416e39d38ae-aa21086260d3bd4e072d597fe09c2e80.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/images/disruption-timetables/2018-03-03/Manchester-Victoria—Huddersfield.pdf
SMART takes no view on the merits or otherwise of the positions taken by the RMT and by Arriva Northern in this dispute.
