  • 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.
