TransPennine Express has confirmed that trains on all of their network are being delayed this morning after a train broke down in Manchester.
The train has broken down between Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Airport and means some lines are blocked.
Disruption is expected until 12:15.
The train has broken at Mauldeth Road, and means trains are unable to run in both directions between Manchester Airport and Piccadilly.
A train will be coming from Crewe to rescue the stranded unit.
Customers can use their tickets on the following services:
- The next available TransPennine Express service towards their destination
- Northern services in both directions between Manchester Airport and Preston
- Metrolink services in both directions between Manchester Airport and Manchester Piccadilly/Manchester Victoria
