    Train companies affected

    Southeastern, Thameslink

    Routes affected

    Southeastern between London Cannon Street and Dover Priory, and also between London Victoria and Dover Priory / Ramsgate

    Thameslink between Luton and Rainham

    Description

    A 40-metre long landslip on a railway cutting at Newington has resulted in movement of an embankment which is falling onto the railway. As a result, Network Rail have closed the line between Sittingbourne and Gillingham until Monday 8 February so essential repairs to take place.

    Working together with Network Rail, Southeastern and Thameslink have a contingency plan in place to make sure you can get to where you need to go, but please check before you travel.

    How does this affect my journey?

    Buses will replace trains between Gillingham and Sittingbourne for the duration of the closure.

    The following alterations to the train service will be in place:

    • From Monday to Friday, a limited High Speed service is expected to run between St Pancras and Gillingham at peak times. There will be no off-peak service between these stations.
    • From Monday to Friday, a half-hourly Peak is expected to run between Victoria and Gillingham.
    • An hourly off-peak service will run between Victoria and Gillingham.
    • Trains will run between Sittingbourne and Dover Priory.
    • Trains will run between Sittingbourne and Ramsgate via Margate.
    • An hourly service will run between Sittingbourne and Sheerness-on-Sea.

     

    What do I need to do?

    Southeastern customer advice:

    Replacement buses in the morning are likely to be busy and social distancing may not be possible.

    Throughout the duration of the closure, you'll be able to use your ticket, at no extra cost on:

    • Replacement buses between Gillingham and Sittingbourne
    • London Underground between Southeastern terminal stations
    • Thameslink services via reasonable routes
    • Docklands Light Railway on all reasonable routes
    • High Speed services via Canterbury West for passengers needing Kent coast stations

     

    Because of the late notice nature of this closure, online Journey Planners will be updated up to 48 hours in advance only.

    Journey Planners are up to date for Monday 25 January.

    Journey Planners are not currently up to date for Tuesday 26 January to Sunday 7 February.

     

    For more information from Southeastern about the incident, click here.

    Thameslink customers advice:

    No trains are running between Gillingham and Rainham until the end of Sunday, 7 February

    Thameslink trains between Luton or Central London and Rainham are terminating at Gillingham.

    Trains are then starting back from Gillingham in the opposite direction, towards London and Luton.

    Rail replacement buses will be running between Gillingham and Rainham, for any customers travelling between these two stations. Using the bus will add around 10 minutes of extra journey time.

    Southeastern services will also be affected in this area. If you're travelling with them, please check their website for advice.

    Why can't Thameslink run trains to Rainham if the landslip is at Newington?

    During the time that engineers are carrying out repair works near Newington, the power to the electric third rail has been switched off for their safety. The affected area runs all the way up to Rainham station.

    With no power to the track, this means Thameslink trains which usually travel to Rainham are unable to run beyond Gillingham.

    Check before you travel:
    Due to the late notice nature of this closure, Online Journey Planners will not be updated as far in advance as is usually possible. We're working on the train plan now and will update this message with those dates which are updated in Journey Planners as and when they are.

    Train companies affected

    Great Northern, Thameslink

    Routes affected

    Thameslink and Great Northern routes

    Description

    Heavy snow over recent days has caused diruption to Thameslink and Great Northern services on a number of routes. Trains may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

    Disruption is expected until 10:00.

    Customer Advice
    Thameslink and Great Northern services are disrupted by snowy and icy weather on a number of routes, as below.

    Leave extra time for your journey and check your train before you travel.

    Some platforms may also be icy at our stations, despite the best efforts of our staff and contractors. Please take extra care around our stations, wear suitable clothing and footwear, and don't run for trains.

    Services to & from Peterborough, Cambridge, Letchworth Garden City, Stevenage or Welwyn Garden City:

    Some drivers have been delayed getting to work due to severe weather, and a number of trains have suffered door damage due to the frozen conditions.

    Trains may be delayed, cancelled or revised to terminate before they get to their usual destinations.

    If there's a long gap between trains on your route, take the next train in the correct direction and change between services where necessary.

    Services to & from Bedford, Luton and St Albans City:

    There will be some cancellations on the route via Luton due to ice compacted in the points at one of our depots.

    We expect this to mainly affect trains which start from Bedford or Flitwick, heading towards London St Pancras International, then to destinations south of London. In turn, some trains in the opposite direction will also be affected.

    There may also be some other delays between Bedford and St Pancras due to points failures at other locations, but these are less severe at present.

    Ticket acceptance on alternative routes:

    You may use your tickets interchangeably on Thameslink or Great Northern at no extra cost.

    You may also use:

    - Tube services on any reasonable route (please be aware they have disruption to some routes as well)

    - LNER services between Peterborough and London Kings Cross (you must make a seat reservation - please check with them for details before you travel)

    - Southern services, for journeys between London and Horsham or Brighton

    More information about the incident on the routes via Stevenage & Welwyn Garden City:

    Some of our train drivers have advised they're having significant problems getting to work due to snow causing disruption on local roads.

    A number of trains, mainly on our Peterborough route, have also been damaged by snow and ice making their way into door mechanisms.

    We're doing everything we can to get our crews to their trains, but some services will be unavoidably affected.

    More information about the incident on the Bedford, Luton & St Albans City route:

    Recent snowfall has become compacted in points at one of our depots near Bedford. This means some empty trains are unable to safely travel over the junctions used to exit the depot. Extensive efforts have been made to remove the snow but this has proved extremely challenging. We have asked specialists to attend the depot and carry out further work.

    Until all the trains can depart the depot, or we can find others from our different depots around the network, there will be some changes to our train service.

    Routes affected

    Between Carmarthen / Swansea and Shrewsbury

    Description

    The Heart of Wales Line is currently closed between Llanelli and Llanwrtyd. This is due to the ongoing repairs to the track following the derailment of a freight train near Llangennech.

    How is this affecting the train service?

    Trains are unable to run between Llanelli and Llanwrtyd.

    Network Rail is working around the clock to complete the considerable repairs needed. The line is not expected to reopen until 5 March at the earliest.

    What happened?

    On Wednesday 26 August, a freight train transporting diesel fuel derailed and caught fire in the Llangennech area. The remaining diesel from the wagons has been removed and the damaged wagons have all been removed from site by road. Network Rail are now repairing damage to the rail infrastructure. Regular updates from Network Rail can be found here and a short video can also be viewed here.

    Also in August 2020, extreme weather resulted in damage to the railway in various locations between Llandrindod and Craven Arms. Repairs on this section of the line were completed in November 2020 and trains are able to run again between Llandrindod and Shrewsbury.
