Dick Franklin comments: the train was retimed on the day to leave Northwich at 11.52 but I am unsure where the re-timings stretched to (the original times are shown in the tabulation below). I suspect the water stop at Northenden was either cut out or reduced. The train was also re-timed on the day from Settle onwards - the tabulation below shows these new booked times.
