15 November - 13 December

Cumbrian Coast engineering works

On Sundays (15, 22, 29 November and 6 and 13 December 2020), buses replace trains along the Cumbrian Coast line between Sellafield, Ravenglass and Millom as Network Rail upgrade track in the Bootle area.

Trains will still run between Carlisle, Workington, Whitehaven and Sellafield in the North, and between Millom, Kirkby-in-Furness and Barrow-in-Furnessinthe South.

Due to the locations of stations along the line, journeys will take significantly longer than usual where rail replacement bus services are in operation.
