Northern has introduced a new set of timetables as the entire rail industry adapts to a ‘new normal’ as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Introduced on Monday 14 September, these timetables deliver more services in many areas and extended operating hours in others.

On a very small number of routes there has been no increases and, for a handful, a reduction in services.

The timetables don’t represent a return to pre-COVID service levels, but do reflect the challenges facing Northern and the changing demands of customers, many of whom will be returning to schools and workplaces for the first time in several months.

We are doing all we can to provide the best possible service for customers across the network. Many members of staff have been shielding and the knock-on effects of the virus will be felt for many months.

With limited resources, the timetables have been designed to put all our available staff in the right places at the right times to keep as many people as possible on the move without risking reduced punctuality and reliability.

The new timetables began on 14 September and details can be found below.


Travelling with us


If you choose to travel by train, please travel safe. You must wear a face covering on board the train and in the station (unless a medical condition or disability prevents you), try to avoid busy times varying your usual travel times to prevent crowding and check the times of your journey before you travel. 

If you are showing any Coronavirus symptoms, however mild, you should self-isolate along with other members of your household. The latest Public Health England advice is available here.  

We will continue to do all we can and hope you will also continue to play your part when travelling on Northern services.
