Passenger trains start running again on
Saturday 13th February


Important Notice about services between
Leeming Bar and Northallerton West

As a result of the severe flooding of the River Swale at Morton-on-Swale just before the New Year, the Swale Bridge has to be inspected both above and below water level to ensure that it is safe for trains. Until that is completed, no trains are allowed to pass over it and so it is necessary to cancel trains between Leeming Bar and Northallerton West until further notice. We apologise for the inevitable inconvenience that this will cause to our customers.
