There is engineering work on the Mid Cheshire Line during May 2015 ....

From Monday 4th May to Thursday 7th May 2015 (inclusive)

The 2248 service from Chester to Manchester is a bus throughout.

One bus will run from Chester to Manchester Piccadilly and a second bus will run from Knutsford to Manchester Piccadilly, departing Knutsford 2330.

On Sunday 31st May 2015

Because of Engineering Work taking place between Stockport and Ashley, all services between Stockport and Northwich will be replaced by buses. 

There will be a rail service between Manchester Piccadilly and Stockport and between Northwich and Chester during these Engineering Works.

Note rail tickets are valid on the Metrolink Altrincham line on Sunday but note Metrolink will only be operating between Altrincham and Cornbrook on that date with a replacement bus service between Trafford Bar and Piccadilly Station.
