    It is the 13th this thursday.

    First Transpennine Express go from Manchester to Leeds. Just go to their website and book tickets there.

    Dunno what time you want but you can change it on there.

    Imagine you'll have to change at either Rochdale or Piccadilly though.

    Just looked and you def. have to change. And I was right in thinking Oldham Mumps trains go to Victoria 'cause they're local, so then you'd have to get from Victoria to Piccadilly (there is one train to Leeds from Victoria but it's the longest most pointless train in the world!!! Avoid at all costs!!)

    So yeha, you'd be best switching at Rochdale. Unless you found your way to Rochdale/Piccadilly to get it directly.

    rochdale to leeds train is rubbish, i hate it! Though its cheaper then the Picadilly train and easier for you if you get on the loop line and get off at rochdale.

    Both would be simple really.

    Just get the train from oldham to rochdale, get off, and then train from rochdale to leeds. Or..
    Bus to manchester, train from piccadilly.

    Id always go for the piccadilly train over the rochdale train, as the rochdale one is sooooooooo slow and stops everywhere and they trains arnt very nice. Unfortuntaly i have to get that to get home, oh well.

    So yeah, i would say piccadilly

    Snap, however I live in neighbouring Littleborough.

    PS. The Victoria train does stop all around the houses, but desperate times calls for desparate and somewhat monotonus measures.
