As our health crisis deepens here’s a snapshot of the consequences on our local railway networks as of today
Kirkby – Wigan: replacement bus (as it has been for last few days) every two hours
Ormskirk – Preston: replacement bus every two hours and finishing early evening
Southport – Manchester: hourly service to Victoria finishing early evening
As I penned this posting Merseyrail was running a half hourly service across its network
But of course no one wants anyone to use the remaining trains or replacement buses unless they are key workers or the travel is absolutely necessary.
