No trains between Horsham and Dorking until 21 January

A landslip between Horsham and Dorking means that trains are currently unable to run between these stations.

We anticipate disruption will continue until 21 January.

Customer Advice

The line between Horsham and Dorking is now closed for landslip repairs.

Buses will replace trains on Monday 20 January. (There is no Sunday service between Horsham and Dorking.)

Replacement buses:

Rail replacement buses will operate between Horsham and Dorking in both directions, serving Warnham, Ockley and Holmwood. This will make your journey up to 30 minutes longer, so please travel as early as possible.

Buses will operate every half an hour at weekday peak times, and every hour at off-peak times. Journey planners have been updated with bus timings for today. Timings for Monday will be updated as soon as possible.

For replacement bus stop information and alternative routes from your station, please see station posters or search for your station on our station information pages.

At Warnham, buses will depart from the junction of the A24 and Station Road, west of the station. This is due to the limited space available for buses on Station Road itself. Please disregard station posters.

Changes to train services:

Most trains on this route will be revised to only run between Dorking and London Victoria, not calling at Horsham, Warnham, Ockley or Holmwood. (This will apply in both directions - to and from London.)

However, a small number of trains will be diverted and will run between Horsham and London Victoria via Redhill and Clapham Junction, not calling at the usual stations via Dorking, Epsom and Sutton.

A very small number of further trains will also need to be cancelled completely, but Southern will keep this to a minimum.

Ticket acceptance and car parking arrangements:

If you prefer, you can use your tickets on the following alternative services:

  • Southern and Thameslink between Horsham and Central London via Gatwick Airport and Redhill (change at Redhill for Great Western Railway services to Dorking Deepdene)
  • Great Western Railway between Gatwick Airport, Redhill and Dorking Deepdene (approximately 5 minutes' walk to Dorking station; please be aware Dorking Deepdene has no step-free access)
  • METROBUS services on route 93 between Horsham (Bus Station), Warnham (Old School), Capel (for Ockley), Beare Green (for Holmwood) and Dorking
  • South Western Railway services between Dorking, Leatherhead, Epsom, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo

Passengers who usually park at Ockley may instead use car park season tickets to park at Dorking instead.

Can you tell me more about the incident?

On Tuesday 14 January, a landslip was reported very close to Ockley station. The embankment below the London-bound line has been damaged. Network Rail staff are now carrying out repairs as quickly as possible. To do this safely, the railway has been closed in both directions through the area.

It is now expected that the line will reopen for morning peak time services on Tuesday 21 January.

Southern are working closely with Network Rail to monitor the progress of the works, and would like to thank you for your patience at this time.

Amended Northern service in the North West today

There are planned cancellations on a number of Northern's routes in the north west of England today.

The following alterations will apply:

Wigan - Stalybridge 

A rail replacement bus service will be in place between Wigan North Western and Bolton calling at Ince, Hindley and Westhoughton.

A rail replacement bus service will be in place between Manchester Victoria and Stalybridge calling at Ashton-under-Lyne.

Standby road transport will be available at Preston for customers wishing to travel to / from Hellifield.

 

Additional information:

Each week, Northern are having to adjust their Sunday timetable and as a result, their on-board crew rosters, on a small number of routes in the north west. There are several factors impacting Northern's ability to run these services, including engineering work and being able to match employees' availability within their working agreements.

Northern do not cancel services lightly and routes with cancelled Sunday service are chosen carefully to minimise the impact on customers. On each of the affected routes, customers will have a range of alternative options available to them including other Northern services, trains run by other operators or rail replacement road transport.
