I'm hearing that after half term the service will go to a service ever 90 minutes.  Have anyone else seen this?

Here's the time-table from Northern

This is the new Rose Hill timetable starting from Monday 14-Sep.
No trains will stop at Fairfield.
NB: There are additional bus services not shown on this poster, and here are the bus replacement timetables to complete the picture

Some services will continue to run on the Rose Hill line after all!

"William Wragg, our local Member of Parliament, has secured concessions from Northern Rail which means that services from Rose Hill-Manchester Piccadilly will not completely grind to a halt on Monday":

https://www.williamwragg.org.uk/news/william-wragg-mp-saves-rose-hill-marple-line-closure

"Labour-led Stockport Council works with government, local MPs and Northern Trains to find last minute solution reinstating two additional services and promising 90-minute service from late October":

https://saverosehill.co.uk/news/stockport-labour-work-cross-party-to-save-rose-hill-services/

Impressed how quickly their web sites were updated!

The word on the Marple grapevine is that Northern will now be providing some kind of skeleton service on the Rose Hill line rather than their planned suspension of all services.

Will be watching Parliament TV with interest at around 5pm.

Was hoping for the FLYING SCOTSMAN .

You'll have to wait until they've converted it to run from renewable energy. We're trying not to use coal these days :)

That’s great news, and as Northern Trains is government-owned it offers the possibility of an eleventh-hour reprieve. Presumably the rail minister has the power to direct Northern Trains to continue the service. It won’t magically provide sufficient trained drivers, of course, so NT will just have to cut other services. And it makes it even less likely that the Hogwarts Express will be calling at Rose Hill next week. 😏

If we get a reprieve, I'd be absolutely gobsmacked.  We'll just get the standard waffle about Covid challenges, and how they've done the best they can etc etc.

Parliamentary Debate on Rose Hill Line

I understand that MP William Wragg has secured a Parliamentary Debate - an Adjournment Motion - on Northern’s plan to suspend the Rose Hill Service.

It is scheduled for this Thursday morning, last item on the agenda in the 10.10 - 11.30 session [Update: now expected to be around 5pm.]

It should be possible to watch the debate on Parliament TV or via https://www.parliament.uk/

Friends of Rose Hill Station believe it may be of benefit to email William Wragg your comments about how the suspension will impact you personally.
