Amended weekday Off-Peak timetable on some Southeastern routes until Friday 13 December

50 million leaves fall on to train tracks every autumn. When mixed with rain and squashed by train wheels, they form a slippery layer on the rails like black ice. On days or weeks when rails are most slippery, different timetables need to be introduced on some routes.

Drivers need more time to stop and start the trains as the wheels have less grip on the tracks. These timetable changes allow drivers the extra time they need to drive the trains safely.

Conditions are expected to be at their worst until Friday 13 December. Southeastern will be running a revised midweek Off-Peak metro timetable on these days.

For more information, please follow this link.

Reduced Great Northern and Thameslink services from 15:00 until the end of the day

From approximately 15:00 until the end of service, train services across the whole Great Northern network will be disrupted by the unavailability of train crew.

There will also be some cancellations and alterations to Thameslink services on the following routes (in both directions) :

We are continuing to update journey planners to show which trains are affected, so please check before you travel to ensure your train is running. We are working hard to minimize the disruption and will run as many trains as possible.

If you are travelling during this time, you may need to wait longer for a train to your destination, or take the next train in the correct direction and then change trains en route.

Trains which do operate will be busier than usual.

Ticket acceptance and alternative routes:

For some journeys, you may wish to consider an alternative route if your train is cancelled.

This afternoon, we will make sure there is ticket acceptance with alternative operators. We will update you when this is in place.

Greater Anglia have informed us that their trains on routes via Ely and Cambridge will be disrupted today. This will mean that there will be fewer alternative journey options available.

Can you tell me more about the incident?

Every effort is being made to limit the impact of this disruption, and we are doing our best to provide you with information as soon as possible.

In the early hours of this morning, control room staff have been working to identify how trains will be affected by the unavailability of crew. The majority of cancellations are now shown in journey planners, allowing you to make the right travel choices so that you can get to your destination as soon as possible.

We are continuing to make some further changes, so please check right before you travel, as well as planning ahead.

Amended London Northwestern Railway and West Midlands Railway service on Saturday 7 December - strike suspended

The industrial action by members of the RMT Union, which would have affected London Northwestern Railway and West Midlands Railway servces on every Saturday in December, has been suspended. As a result, the normal planned service will operate on Saturdays 14, 21 and 28 December.

  • Leave more time for journeys: Other train companies are due to run a normal service but will be busier than usual (please note: tickets marked 'WMR & LNR ONLY' will not be accepted on Virgin Trains or Chiltern Railways services). Don't aim for the last train home, get there early and be prepared to queue at some stations.
  • Consider your options: If you no longer wish to travel on Saturday, you can get a ticket refund or travel either today or the Sunday / Monday afterwards.
  • Visiting Birmingham for shopping and the Christmas Market?: Consider travelling to the city earlier and leaving earlier. The busiest time to travel around the West Midlands will be between 15:00 and 16:00 and again at the end of the day.
