Short notice cancellations North West and major events

Most train operators in the UK follow standard Monday to Friday, and weekend timetables, although there will inevitably be changes that may affect your journey. Likewise, asides from London Underground's Night Tube and special airport services, the majority of trains do not operate 24/7, with services stopping from around 01:00 until 05:00.

This means that essential track or train maintenance can be carried out without impacting on passengers’ travel plans.

Stations, too, often close overnight, with ticket offices locked. However, if you wish to purchase train tickets outside the opening hours, Northern’s free downloadable mobile app allows you to do so easily.

Timetables can change at the last minute, so make sure you check before you travel.
