  • XC – CrossCountry services on various routes

    Amended CrossCountry service until further notice

    Last updated: 08:13 20/01/2022

    Due to train crew availability issues and ongoing Covid isolation instances, there will be disruption to CrossCountry services until further notice.

    Some trains may start later or finish earlier than originally planned, and there will be a number of cancellations throughout the day in order to provide a more robust timetable. You may find that the train you had booked to travel on is no longer running. Some services may also be formed of fewer carriages than usual and will therefore be busier.

    This will mainly affect services operating from Monday to Saturday. The vast majority of CrossCountry services on Sundays are planned to run as normal. A list of all the planned cancellations can be found on the CrossCountry website. Alongside planned cancellations, there may be on the day alterations, therefore it is recommended that you check your journey before you travel.

    ​​​​​​​Check before you travel:

    Weekdays:

    If you are travelling on weekdays up to and including Friday 11 February, you can check your journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

  • AW – Various Transport for Wales routes 

    Amended Transport for Wales timetable until further notice

    Last updated: 02:18 19/01/2022

    Transport for Wales are running an amended timetable across their network until further notice. This in place to prepare for the rise in staff shortages due to COVID-19 illnesses and isolations and to provide a robust and reliable service in the coming months.

    The amended timetable represents a reduction of around 15% of the normal timetable, therefore the majority of services are expected to run as scheduled. However, you are strongly advised to check before you travel in case there are any short notice alterations made to the service. You can use Transport for Wales's Journey Check page to check your journey on the day you are travelling.

    Further information:

    All customers are urged to check the Transport for Wales website before travelling and follow the up-to-date guidance from the Welsh Government.   

    Customers who have already purchased tickets for services affected by this timetable change will be able to use tickets on alternative Transport for Wales rail services. Alternatively, you will be able to request a refund by visiting https://tfw.wales/help-and-contact/rail/refunds.

    ​​​​​​​Check before you travel:
    If you are travelling on dates up to and including Friday 28 January, you can check your journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner

    If you are travelling on dates from Saturday 29 January onwards, please check back closer towards your intended time of travel.

  • SWR – Various South Western Railway routes

    Amended South Western Railway timetable until further notice

    Last updated: 04:18 20/01/2022

    South Western Railway are operating a new temporary timetable from Monday 17 January onwards. The new timetable will continue to ensure reliability for customers, and cater for key workers, school pupils and those who cannot work from home.

    The spread of Omicron has necessitated the need for a new timetable, with staff shortages across SWR leading to short notice cancellations. The timetable will also allow South Western Railway to match capacity and demand effectively, with Covid restrictions meaning more people are working from home.  

    More details about this timetable can be found on the South Western Railway website.

    Check before you travel:

    If you are travelling on days up to and including Friday 28 January, you can check your journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

    If you are travelling on days from Saturday 29 January onwards, please check back closer towards your intended time of travel as the amended timetable has not yet been uploaded.
