Rather than the additional Thursday evening Christmas service from Carlisle to Kirkby Stephen return, Northern will be modifying the stopping pattern of the Carlisle-Leeds service departing 2018 hours. There will be additional stops at Armathwaite (2032 hours) and Lazonby (2039 hours). So, if you live local to these stations, why not do some late-night shopping, go to the cinema of for a meal in Carlisle. Please take advantage of this and help us to prove there is a need for a permanent timetable change for stops at these stations. Put a note in your diary for the Thursdays from 15 November to 18 December.
