As people will be aware parts of the line from Manchester Victoria via Miles Platting are closed for engineering work on the above dates

Does anyone know the limits of the block?

The services on the Calder Valley are terminating at either Rochdale or Moston with the stock off the Moston services reversing at Thorpes Bridge Jn and back to Moston.
There are a number of ECS moves from Newton Heath to Manchester Victoria in the timetable via Miles Platting and also Freight workings
The Liverpool to Drax service is showing the normal route via Philips Park West Jn and Brewery Jn SX but diverted on the Saturday 31st via Diggle

Just wondering how much of the railway is actually open

There is info in RTT but some services have not been amended

Thanks

Peter

Passenger journeys are replaced by ‘a high quality coach service’ or diversions.
But if you are thinking of catching the tram, there are also engineering works going on round about this time.
Wondering if this has been thought through?

This has been in the planning stage for more than a year - why do you think it has not been though thru?

I am more interested in what is happening on the ground and which sections of the railway are still open
It would appear there will be a route thru Miles Platting for ECS Moves to/from Newton Heath but what about the freight?
