Semi-Fast Train Information

Share

If Merseyrail services are affected by a disruptive event, it is important that a normal timetable is restored as soon as possible to minimise the effect on passenger’s journeys.
 
On some occasions Merseyrail trains will run as semi-fast services to help restore a disrupted timetable.
 
This means that trains will run directly between two appointed stations, not stopping at stations in-between.
 
Careful consideration is always taken when deciding if a service should run as a semi-fast service and services are only altered when the change will benefit the majority of passengers.
 
If a service is to run as a semi-fast service, announcements will be made on the train, on the platform via the station public address system and digital screens will advise of the change.
