Newcastle train update

Following on from our Newcastle train update, you won't be surprised to hear that First, which operates the Transpennine Express 21:47 service from Newcastle the Manchester Piccadilly, hasn't come up trumps for reds tomorrow.

We politely asked First if they would delay the train by 20 minutes to allow fans to get from St James's Park to the ground before the departure, instead of facing an arrival in Piccadilly at 4.10am.

Despite promising to consider delaying the train and notify us of its decision, First hasn't got back to us and so the train will still depart at 21:47.

If you're making the journey up to Geordieland tomorrow, don't forget our travel, pub and hotel guide.
