"With severe weather warnings in place for heavy snow on our network, we have taken the decision to put a special timetable in place for Friday.
“We know that what our passengers want most is certainty about when and how they are going to get to their destination.
"This special timetable helps ensure this by running slightly fewer services and allowing more time for trains to cope with poor conditions. In addition, it allows us to avoid train crew being in the wrong place which can cause further disruption.
"The revised timetable we have in place for Friday will help to ensure we make best use of our resources to deliver the most robust service we can for passengers should the forecasts prove accurate and help our passengers plan ahead."
