Strike action is planned for Tuesday 30 May.

We will do our best to keep you on the move. However, we will be operating a reduced service and expect all services to be busy. Customers are advised to give themselves more time to travel and to consider whether their journey is necessary.

Also what is when is replacing the 142s on the Bishop line!

Just noticed this

158's will be coming in New Northern Connect Spec for the merging of the current 1x Hour Newcastle-Carlisle Service with a new Semi-Fast express Service to Middlesbrough via the ECML calling at Chester-Le-Street,Durham and onwards to Middlesbrough via the Stillington Line at Ferryhill, There will continue to be a 1x Hour Middlesbrough/Nunthorpe via Durham Coast Service and the Hexham short will continue to Carlisle forming a Half Hourly Service.

Last 142's should be leaving by 3rd Quarter 2019, So basically late Summer/ Autumn time.
