There’s more chaos on TransPennine’s rail network today, just 24 hours after it issued a ‘do not travel’ warning.
Yesterday, December 21, the rail firm warned passengers not to board its trains due to ‘a significant rostering system issue’. That led to ‘a high level of unplanned cancellations and disruption across our network’.
However, the problems have persisted today (December 22), it appears. National Rail has advised passengers that TPE is ‘still experiencing disruption across their whole network today’.

In a series of tweets, National Rail explained how passengers can mitigate the worst effects of the disruption. It said: “TransPennine Express are still experiencing disruption across their whole network today.
“Tickets dated yesterday, Wednesday 21 December, will be valid for travel today and Friday 23 December. To assist with your journey, you may use Avanti West Coast and Northern services via any reasonable route.”
December has been a torrid time for rail users, due to a combination of bad weather, staffing issues, large-scale strike action, and even a shopping trolley. Those problems are set to persist in January.
Thursday (December 22) is not a strike day, but Friday is for East Midlands Railway staff only. There will be more action over the Christmas weekend, this time hitting engineering works, before more walkouts by RMT members in January.
You can check your TransPennine Express journey on its website.
