As a result of Monday evening’s terrorist incident at Manchester Arena, Manchester Victoria station is likely to remain closed for the next few days while investigations continue.

Northern is now operating an emergency train timetable for services that would normally stop at Manchester Victoria station.  As a result there is ongoing impact to many services, in particular those serving the Greater Manchester region. 

Northern advises all customers to check before they travel by going to National Rail Enquiries or Northern Journey Planner.

Liam Sumpter, regional director, said: “Manchester Victoria station will remain closed on Wednesday and it could be several days before it reopens.

“We are working to provide as many services as possible while the station remains closed, but customers need to be aware that there may be some short notice cancellations and delays.”

“Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the people who have lost their lives and those who were injured on Monday evening.”

More updates on train timetables and plans for reopening Manchester Victoria Station will be provided on Northern’s website,  For timetable information, please go to or
