36 Changing lanes

36 Changing lanes TransPennine Express customers in Wigan are being asked to prepare for a major timetable change from May. Train times and services between Edinburgh, Glasgow, Motherwell, Lockerbie, Carlisle, Penrith, Oxenholme, Lancaster, Preston, Wigan and Manchester will soon look quite different. From Sunday, May 20, customers are asked to plan ahead the changes which are part of the Great North Rail Project (GNRP). Services to and from Scotland will run direct between Preston and Manchester Piccadilly meaning the journey will no longer call at Wigan North Western and Manchester Oxford Road. Other operators including Northern Rail will continue to provide services between Wigan and Manchester. Leo Goodwin, Managing Director for TransPennine Express said: “This is one of the biggest timetable changes the North has seen and will deliver real benefits. “Customers are already benefitting from free on-board Wi-Fi and entertainment system, Exstream. Our Nova 2 trains will be introduced on the route from early 2019 as part of a £500million investment which will deliver an extra 13million more seats a year.” Full details of all train times and fares can be found at Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning • traditional service, state of the art results • • Carpets • Rugs • Fabric & Leather Upholstery The most thorough clean, or its free!
