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.

What month/year was it when the trains would be running half hourly from Newcastle to Boro via Sunderland?

Never. The plan is still to run the Carlisle - Newcastle - Middlesbrough Northern Connect via Durham.

Yes, Not the full Durham Coast. But I believe a additional Metrocentre/Newcastle/Heworth/Sunderland service is still in the pipeline, Probably by extending one of the shuttles, Was numbered "TW1" in the document.
While at Heaton I was in a conversation with a two high up's while on my break and that there was potential for a North East-York stopping service, More likely if the full reopening of the Leamside get's the go ahead, With it being " Not too long away "  Of course this could just be speculation, But with the man that mentioned it being pretty high up, They could be some truth in it....
