blankAs a result of the continuing impact of COVID-19, Northern Trains are continuing to operate a reduced timetable service in support of the national effort to delay the spread of Coronavirus. 

Government advice is that anyone in England can use public transport and that you should consider all forms of transport when planning a journey.

If you do choose to travel by train, please travel safe. You must wear a face covering on board the train (unless a medical condition or disability prevents you), try to avoid busy periods varying your usual travel times to prevent crowding and check the times of your journey before you travel.

Temporary travel timetables are in operation across the whole Northern Trains rail network including the Leeds – Settle – Carlisle, Leeds – Bentham – Lancaster/Morecambe rail.

Where’s My Train?

Are you on a station on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle rail line?

If so, you can pick up the phone inside the grey box on the platform and speak to your friendly, local signaller. Or, if you are at Appleby or Settle, you can ask the station supervisor (station opening hours do apply).

Alternatively, you can use your mobile phone. Simply text your station name to 84950. You’ll get a text back within seconds telling you it’s on time or how many minutes late it is. It’ll cost you about 35p.

If you want details of how far the train has got, look at National Rail Enquiries and enter your station name.
