Railway issues Bank Holiday message: don’t travel

TRAIN operating companies and Network Rail have joined forces to issue a strong appeal to passengers over the Bank Holiday weekend: please don’t travel by train. Some services will be disrupted in any case by Network Rail engineering possessions in various parts of the country, but the Government is also still asking people to avoid using public transport where possible. Operator Northern said ‘despite this advice some are still travelling by train for leisure journeys with people spotted travelling to the coast and other picturesque areas for days out’. Regional director Chris Jackson added: ‘The rail industry is working hard to provide the best possible service for key workers and those who need to make essential journeys – and we need everyone else to stay away from the railway to leave space for those who need to travel.’
