Northern Rail is calling on all customers to plan their travel carefully tomorrow due to RMT strike action that will affect the Northern network.

The train operator will run around 850 services on Saturday to keep as many customers on the move as possible.

But, in some areas, train services will be not be available and Northern is asking customers to plan ahead and consider their travel options.

There will be no trains between Hull and York, no trains between Clitheroe and Blackburn and a very limited service between Leeds and Doncaster, which will run between 8am and 3pm.

Sharon Keith, regional director for Northern, said: “As a result of the RMT strike action, we are running a limited timetable on Saturday. Many of our managers and other volunteers will be working hard at the end of a busy and demanding week to operate as contingency conductors on Saturday so that we can provide as many rail – or rail replacement bus – services as possible. However, customers should be aware that we are running fewer trains than normal and all trains that we are able to run are likely to be extremely busy.

“To help customers we have arranged for Northern rail tickets to be accepted on all Arriva buses across the north of England and also on trains run by other operators.”
