Train journeys to be affected by strike action TOMORROW

The strike action begins tomorrow and is set to last for the next four Sundays.

Transpennine Express train journeys are set to be massively affected tomorrow (Sun 13th) due to industrial strike action.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) has announced industrial action by its TPE conductors across the next four consecutive Sundays, from 00:01 – 23:59 on 13th, 20th, and 27th February as well as 6th March.

Transpennine Express have released a heavily reduced timetable for the services which it hopes to be able to operate.

The reduced service means that the first Transpennine Express train heading towards Manchester from Huddersfield will be at 11:25 with the last train at 19:25.

Heading in the opposite direction, the first Transpennine Express train to Leeds (and York) will be at 10:06 with the last train at 20:08.

In a bid to help customers, other operators have agreed to accept customers with ‘(AP) TPE Only’ tickets on the days of the industrial strike action. Additionally, customers can also use their train tickets on Arriva buses between Leeds and Huddersfield – however this had led to some frustration among passengers due to the length of time these buses take to complete their journeys.

All other operators, including Northern, are continuing to run their services as normal.
