Train disruptions for Blackpool

If you're travelling to Blackpool by train for the North West Regional Championships this weekend, then make sure you give yourselves plenty of time to get there.

Winter Gardens
  Make sure you don't get caught out by the planned engineering works on the train line to Blackpool this weekend.

Planned engineering work on the train line between Preston and Blackpool North means that anyone travelling to Blackpool for the North West Regional Championships this weekend will need to give themselves extra time to get there.

Bus replacement

With the line closed over the weekend, it means replacement bus services will take commuters from Preston to Blackpool on those dates.

If you want to make sure you are there in plenty of time, then you'll need to plan ahead and not be derailed — literally.
