Posté le: Lun 30 Juil - 09:33 (2018) Sujet du message: Northern: Many cancelled services resuming after timetable c
Services canceled at schedule shake-up at Northern rail have begun running again.
Northern scrapped 168 services per day to relieve chaos caused by the timetable's introduction in May.
Services in Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire are partially resuming while all trains on the Lakes Line, in the Lake District, are being reinstated.
The remaining 25% of its cancelled trains do not restart until September.
The company, which has faced calls for it to be stripped of its franchise, says a "more gradual" reintroduction will ensure a more stable and reliable service.
However, Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has written to the prime minister, asking her to personally intervene over the "chaos" caused by Northern this summer.
He said: "People could have legitimately expected, when fewer trains were running, that at least the ones that were running would be on time, well they haven't been. The emergency timetable didn't solve anything.
"And then on Saturday night, nine o'clock an email lands saying Northern will cancel 47 services tomorrow so we can get trains in the right place for Monday morning.
"Even if trains do run better today it's because there were no services yesterday.
"They have been poor for a long time in the past, and they have not been much better in the past.
"If you turn up at a train station it's actually a lottery."

Thousands of passengers have applied for compensation from Northern, which made the first pay-outs last week. Canon Contact Number
