    This Saturday, 6 October - the seventh Saturday of RMT strike action - we will be operating a reduced timetable with very few trains running before 9am and after 6pm.

    We expect to run around 30% of services and all customers are advised to plan carefully if they intend to travel on the rail network.

    Unfortunately, on some routes, we aren't able to run services, while others have a limited service. On those routes where we are able to operate trains, we expect all services to be extremely busy. We also have replacement bus services available on some routes where trains aren’t running.

    On Sunday there will be planned cancellations on a small minority of routes, primarily in the north west, and again customers should check up to the last minute before travelling.

    This weekend also sees a significant event taking place in Liverpool with the third visit of The Giants - a large street festival with hundreds of thousands of people expected to attend.

    Liam Sumpter, Regional Director at Northern, said: "On Saturday, as a result of RMT strike action, we will only be able to run a very limited service, with most trains to and from Liverpool starting after 8am and finishing before 7pm.

    "Those services we are able to run will be extremely busy and I am calling on our customers to plan their travel carefully and, where possible, to seek alternative means of travel to and from Liverpool.”

    Our priority during a strike is to keep you informed and on the move and all timetables can be found below. At any time you can keep up-to-date by following us on social media:

    Rip up the track and put in 2 coach lanes.
    These people are a joke ,the workers loose
    money but be assured their leaders
    are laughing at them.

    I was hoping to go to a family event near Bolton on Saturday. No trains past Wigan so looked at getting Stagecoach bus to Bolton from Wigan. That was OK. Coming back the 16:46 from Wigan to Southport goes from Wigan North Western to Lime Street to Liverpool Parkway to Southport and takes 2 hours 22 minutes. What a joke. Needless to say I have had to decline the invitation.

    There won't be any job loses ,it's
    about people not liking change. We didn't
    have this c..p when we lost our beloved
    clippies.
    The future is in b/w, the day of driverless
    trains is coming.
