Getting you where you need to be

Since 2016, we have introduced more than 2,000 extra services a week including earlier and later trains.

Some of the changes include:

  • More direct connection journeys between the larger towns and cities of the north.
  • An increase in peak-time capacity with longer and more frequent trains.
  • Routes across the Pennines are and will be transformed with fast trains to Manchester, Hull, Liverpool, Warrington, Chester, Blackpool and York.


At your service…

We change our timetables every May and December. Each time, we look to make the most of every opportunity to improve your journey by adding more capacity and running more frequent trains.

Where there are improvements to the network, or where we can bring more trains into service, we’ll be doing it.

No one likes standing around at the station, even if it has had lots of lovely improvements, so we’re working to make your journey as smooth as possible with more services (adding earlier and later services) and by improving connection times.

If you are looking to buy tickets for any of our services you can purchase them from Northern’s website or through our app.
