TRAIN bosses have said there are no plans for a shuttle service on the Furness Line while the track is being mended at Grange following a derailment. 

Northern said it would not change its bus replacement service on the line, which is likely to be in place until at least April 21. 

This means that all stops between Barrow and Lancaster will continue to be serviced by a rail replacement bus. 

A spokesperson for Northern said: “We would like to thank our customers and the local community for their patience during the current line closure while Network Rail carries out the important repair work required to the embankment and infrastructure.

“In the meantime – following a detailed review of all the wider operational requirements - we have introduced the most resilient temporary timetable to help people get where they want to be.”

The Furness Line has been shut since an early morning Northern service came off the tracks on Friday, March 22. 

Network Rail removed the train following an initial assessment by the Rail Accident Investigation Branch and is currently mending the line.
