Looking at Real Time Trains from Manchester Victoria to Leeds, it doesnt paint a very good picture at all, and when they want us to get back onto the trains.  Nothing from Manchester to Newcastle from 1145 until 1645.  There were more than this but were already cancelled due to driver shortages which were taken out of the journey planner.

Nobody anywhere seems to have a backup plan at the moment. It's supposed to be critical infrastructure, so there should never be a lack of staff to operate it. Wonder if this would ever happen at a power station? 

Tory Party conference is in Blackpool this weekend, so at least it'll have disrupted some of those who have the power to influence change.
