January 2020 Timetable Changes

Temporary timetable changes to some of our Liverpool - Newcastle - Edinburgh services

An apology to our customers:

Leo Goodwin, Managing Director for TransPennine Express said, “Our performance at the end of last year was not up to scratch and for this I am truly sorry.  We have had a number of issues associated with the introduction of our new trains which caused huge disruption to our customers journeys with us throughout the end of 2019.  To allow our services to recover, and to provide some consistency for customers, we are running an amended timetable throughout the next few weeks along our Liverpool to Edinburgh route so please make sure you check your journey before travelling.

All season ticket holders, who travelled with us towards the end of last year, are eligible for compensation and I would encourage you to visit our dedicated webpage https://www.tpexpress.co.uk/travel-updates/seasonticket-compensation for more information.

I know that the recent issues caused a lot of frustration and I fully admit that it was not acceptable.”


Liverpool to Edinburgh route timetable changes

We are making a number of temporary changes to services along this particular route to enable us to roll out our new fleet of trains. We had expected to be operating a few more of our new trains at this stage but due to a maintenance backlog and infrastructure issues, which has caused a delay in training our on train staff, along with the late delivery of some of our new trains, we are a little behind with this.
We are working hard to bring in the new trains as soon as we possibly can and once we do, we will reintroduce these services.
