Amended Off-Peak timetable on some Southeastern routes until Friday 18 October

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 its worst between Monday 14 - Friday 18 October and Southeastern will be running a revised Off-Peak metro timetable on these days.

Reduced Island Line service until further notice

A shortage of trains on the Island Line as a result of extra safety checks being made means that a reduced service is operating between Shanklin and Ryde Pier Head until further notice.

How is this affecting the train service?

An hourly service will operate on the Island Line as follows:

  • Ryde Pier Head towards Shanklin at 49 minutes past the hour
  • Shanklin towards Ryde Pier Head at 18 minutes past the hour

The normal 2 trains per hour timetable will resume as soon as possible, but the age of the trains and the difficulty in sourcing replacement parts, mean this may take longer than normal. It is currently expected to resume for the start of service on Monday 21 October.
