Northern spokesperson said: “Very few have seen any changes as a result of the timetable coming in today. Services that have changed are generally performing well. We run over 2,800 services per day and only a handful have thus far been cancelled.
"The small number of delays and cancellations are due to operational issues including driver sickness, signalling failure and train faults
“As of this morning, we now have over half (52) of our brand new trains in service – and over half (52) of our Pacer trains have now been retired.”
