Northern trains strike: Lincolnshire passengers warned of Easter disruption

Check your timetable.

Some Northern rail services through Lincolnshire will be affected by a staff walk out for the second time this week, as part of a row over driverless trains.

Northern trains have planned to provide around 70% of their usual services between the hours of 7am and 7pm on Thursday, March 29, affecting services in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Workers from the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) also walked out on Monday over plans to remove guards from trains.

Northern Railway Regional Director Sharon Keith said in a statement: “We know how important rail services are for those travelling around the Easter bank holidays and we will be operating as many of our services as we can to help get our customers where they need to be.

“It is vitally important that our customers plan carefully for their Easter getaways on Thursday as we will have few services in the early morning and late evening.

“Our advice is to plan ahead, allow extra time for travel and check for service updates on our website.”
