"SUDDENLY Liverpool and Manchester have got even closer. Train company First TransPennine Express today launched a non-stop express from Lime Street, and the train really is taking the strain out of commuting between the two big cities.The time brackets are about the only downside as is the fact that you're going to Victoria rather than Picadilly so you've got a bit of a walk or tram ride to get into the main part of town so what you're gaining in train time you're losing in navigating through Manchester. Still, it's better than nothing and the service has already started...
The hourly service to Manchester Victoria will take just 32 minutes - part of a brand new route that finishes at Newcastle. The service leaves at 12 minutes past the hour from 6am until 7pm.
It complements the existing 45-minute express from Lime Street to Piccadilly.
The first train in the opposite direction is at 7.35am and the last 8.35pm."
