Additional disruption is expected from Monday October 2 to Friday October 6 due to action short of strike called by ASLEF and customers are advised to check before they travel as there may be some short notice cancellations to services running on these days.

"We hope to see a resolution to this issue in the near future and an end to the disruption these strikes cause."

TransPennine Express has said it won’t be able to run any trains at all on the strike dates, with a very limited timetable in place on the days following each strike and a spokesperson added: “I would advise customers to check very carefully before they travel and to allow extra time for any journeys.”
