Northern Rail Lakes Line services cancelled for two weeks

Northern Rail has cancelled all services on the Lakes Line for two weeks

Northern Rail has postponed the Lakes Line for two weeks from Monday.

The line runs to and from Preston, Lancaster, Oxenholme and Windermere.

All rail services will be cancelled.

There will be a replacement bus service to keep people who live, work and visit the Lake District on the move.

We have been experiencing some significant disruption to train services, especially around north Manchester, Bolton, Liverpool, Blackpool and up to the Lake District.

"I’d like to apologise for this unacceptable situation and for the disruption and inconvenience many passengers have faced. We’re truly sorry for this and are working hard to fix this."

– DAVID BROWN, MANAGER DIRECTOR OF NORTHERN RAIL
