Right. So Northern is WELL outside our London beat. Which is why we're not covering it on our timetable pieces on LR. People keep asking about it though, so here's a basic overview of the issues up there (as we understand it). /1 #NorthernFail #NorthernRail
One of the big issues is similar to Thameslink (although Northern have been more open about it): Drivers. Again, don't just assume that because a person can DRIVE a train they're CLEARED for every route or EVERY TYPE of train. That's not how it works. /2
The new timetable means a lot more services that terminated at Manchester are now meant to be through trains. This was the DfT's idea. Presumably someone over there looked at the history of Thameslink and thought: "Hey we should do MORE of this!"

Cocaine. It's a helluvah drug /3
