Transport for the North, the Department for Transport and the rail industry monitor timetable changes and agreed actions for the December 2018 timetable which gave passengers a more resilient service on the Huddersfield line. These measures have continued into 2019 and the planned introduction of new longer trains and timetable improvements for this December means further stability, faster services and increased capacity.
