Travel information for Monday 26 August 2019

A shortage of train crew means that a reduced CrossCountry service is in operation across the railway network. 

All passengers travelling this Monday are advised to check their journeys before travel. Passengers who purchased 'ADVANCE' tickets can travel on earlier or later services. 

The following operators have agreed to accept CrossCountry tickets until the end of service:

  • London Northwestern Railway services between Stoke-On-Trent and Coventry in both directions.
  • West Midlands Railway services between Coventry and Leamington Spa in both directions.
  • South Western Railway between Basingstoke and Bournemouth in both directions.
  • Chiltern Railways between Birmingham Snow Hill and Banbury in both directions.
  • Great Western Railway via any reasonable route. 

To check if your journey is affected, please visit our Journey Check. Alternatively, you can contact us on Twitter or Facebook

If as a result you have been delayed 30 minutes or more, please claim your compensation using our Delay Repay scheme.
