Northern Rail has drawn up replacement timetables for the latest strikes

Northern Rail employees are among workers from five rail operators set to stage fresh walkouts tomorrow (Monday), Wednesday and Friday amid the ongoing dispute over plans for driver-only trains.

Northern says it will run more than 60 per cent of its normal weekday timetable on those days between the hours of 7am and 7pm.

But it expects trains and any replacement buses to be 'extremely' busy and has urged passengers to allow extra time for journeys, plan carefully and consider whether they need to travel.
