AS a result of strike action Northern is operating amended rail timetables and expects those services which are running to be extremely busy.

Sharon Keith, regional director for Northern, said: “Our amended timetables mean our services will start to wind down from around 5pm and there will be very few after 7pm.

“It is vital that our customers start thinking now about how they will get home this evening.

“Our train services and rail replacement buses will be extremely busy as the evening rush hour arrives and we urge everyone to plan ahead.”

The only remaining services running on the Furness line this evening will be the 5.20pm service from Lancaster to Barrow.

It will call at:

Silverdale - 5.35pm

Arnside - 5.41pm

Grange - 5.47pm

Kents Bank - 5.50pm

Cark - 5.55pm

Ulverston - 6.03pm

Dalton - 6.11pm

Roose - 6.18

Barrow (terminates) - 6.25pm
