Merseyrail issues Christmas timetable changes

During the festive period, there will be changes to Merseyrail timetables, with some services finishing earlier than usual and some services not running.

In the past, Merseyrail has run late-night trains in the run-up to Christmas and services on Boxing Day. Due to the impact of COVID-19, these services will not operate this year. There are no planned engineering works for the rest of the year. For information on future planned works in 2021 click here.
