Lakes Line Timetable
Northern's timetable changed on 9th December. In fact very little has changed, both because Northern is still recovering from its meltdown in the summer, and also many of the problems which meant they couldn't run the proposed May timetable are still around. The timetable is part of booklet 6, which you can find at:
and scroll down to route 06, current timetable.
If your journey is affected by a cancellation of a train or replacement bus, please let us know (email@example.com). If possible, please also send a copy to Community Rail Cumbria :
who will make sure it reaches the Lakes Line CRP. If you also copy in Northern's Contact Centre (firstname.lastname@example.org) then it makes sure they know about the disruption being caused.
The Winter Bulletin is now available. To make sure of your copy, join the Group using the membership form on this website.
Oxenholme Station car parks.
Virgin Trains will be installing Automatic Number Plate Recognition equipment at their car parks at Oxenholme from 10th October. The new payment system is up and running.
Collecting tickets bought on line
If you buy tickets using your computer, you can collect them at Kendal or Burneside or Staveley. Don't be put off when you can't find 'our' three stations in the list, it's just that they haven't been added yet; apparently the train companies only use the station name you choose for some statistic or other. If you leave the box blank it doesn't matter.
As part of its compensation to passengers in our area for the disruption last year, Northern has a special offer on off-peak travel across some of its routes in Cumbria and Lancashire. Go to https://www.northernrailway.co.uk/25off for full details. Note, however, that it is limited to the routes shown, and Northern services. The offer finishes on Saturday 6th April.
