Passenger trains will be calling again at Brigg railway station in the near future after a gap of many months.
There's been a long-running industrial dispute between the Northern by Arriva company and the RMT union about retaining guards/conductors on trains.
But now, following arbitration, a formula has been agreed that is acceptable to both sides.
The RMT, which has agreed to suspend its Saturday strike action, says the company has confirmed its willingness to accept:
- That for the duration of the current franchise every train will run with a conductor on board in addition to the driver
- Where new or modified rolling stock is being introduced, every train will continue to run with a conductor.
As far as passengers are concerned, Northern anticipates Saturday services getting back to normal from February 16.
Something below a full service will operate this Saturday (February 9) and Northern is currently suggesting that it will be unable to provide trains to and from Brigg.
