More trains on time than ever before for company

Have your say

Train operator Northern Rail ran more than 95 per cent of services on time last month, according to new figures.

The company – which runs many services from Sheffield railway station – said achieving 95.26 per cent of trains leaving and arriving on time was its ‘best ever result’ since the franchise started in 2004.

Alex Hynes, managing director, said: “It’s a franchise best for us and a direct outcome of the incredibly dedicated teams which operate across our entire network.”
