Northern has advised its customers across the North of England that services will be brought to a halt on Saturday 30 September as the latest ASLEF strike takes place.

The train operator has published a travel advice calendar for Friday 29 September – Tuesday 3 October to highlight when services will be affected.

There will be no Northern services at all on Friday 30 September when ASLEF members – most of whom are employed as train drivers – stage their latest walk out.

Additional disruption is expected on Friday 29 September and from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October due to action short of strike called by ASLEF and customers are advised to check before they travel as there may be some short notice cancellations to services running on these days.

There will also be no services on Wednesday October 4 – when an additional strike has been called by the union.
