Engineering Works, 14th to 29th April

Buses replace trains between Stalybridge and Victoria on weekdays 16th to 27th April.

Buses replace trains between Huddersfield and Victoria on weekends 14/15, 21/22 & 28/29 April.

At the moment we do not know whether Northern will also withdraw some of the peak hour services between Huddersfield and Slaithwaite/Marsden (as they did last time there was a weekday closure between Stalybridge & Victoria), nor whether they will overlook the need for any publicity at Huddersfield/Marsden/Slaithwaite for changes.

Apparently it’s all part of “The Great North Rail Project”. Any bit of engineering work, no matter how trivial, seems to be badged as “The Great North Pail Project”, though no-one seems able to say what the Great North Rail Project is, what it involves, and what will be achieved by its completion.
