As a result of industrial action at Transpennine Express and planned engineering works, Northern expect busier services than usual across the network on Sundays in February.

Industrial action on Transpennine Express trains will take place over the next four Sundays, beginning 13 Feb 2022, into early March 2022 and may affect usual services.

Northern also want to make passengers aware that they are expecting extremely busy services on Sunday, February 20 due to the Leeds United vs Manchester United football match.

Services may be particularly busy between 9am and 1pm and 4pm and 7pm on Sunday in and around Leeds and Manchester.

Northern would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience if you are travelling with them.
