Commuters across Cumbria will face disruption on rail services today, as Northern Rail staff go on strike.

Staff on Northern Rail services have voted to take industrial action for 24 hours, in a dispute over the role of guards.

It's forced the operator to run a reduced timetable and 300 rail replacement buses across it's network.

To view the revised rail timetables and replacement bus timetables, you can visit the Northern Rail Industrial Action page here.

Bus replacement services are running between:

  • Appleby and Carlisle
  • Oxenholme to Windermere
  • Workington to Carlisle
