Have your say

Train passengers must endure cancellations and replacement bus services this summer as part of the electrification of the railway.

Network Rail has announced the line between Chorley and the junction with the West Coast mainline at Euxton will be shut between Saturday, July 19, and Sunday, August 31.

It means the First TransPennine Express services between Manchester and Blackpool North, Barrow-in-Furness and Windermere will be diverted and will not stop at Chorley and Buckshaw Parkway.
