We think it’s about time for a competition 🎉

The use of face coverings are compulsory when on our trains and in our stations (exemptions apply), but who said you can’t still look fly whilst wearing one?

We’ve teamed up with the fantastic Joe Ellis, Sway Tattooer & badmanazzz to create a selection of limited edition Northern face coverings to wear when travelling with us.
