Network Rail is constantly maintaining and repairing railway tracks, signalling and stations. This sometimes means we have to alter our published timetables or put buses and coaches on to replace our train services.

You can see any train timetable changes here. The train travel information on this page is updated continually, so as soon as a problem is solved we'll let you know! You can choose to view updates for any time - whether it’s today, tomorrow, or a specific date in the future. These also include updates for all train companies as well as CrossCountry journeys.

    CORONAVIRUS - Latest Travel Updates

    Train companies affected

    London Underground, National Rail

    Routes affected

    National Rail routes across England, Scotland and Wales   

    Description

    Let's get back on track.

    Train Operating Companies are continuing to work hard to offer you a safe and reliable journey.

    A new timetable will be introduced by the Train Operators during May as normal, which will be in place for several months.

    However, some trains may still be subject to short notice alterations due to the continuing effects of Coronavirus on staffing levels. We continue to recommend that you check your journey before you begin travelling, and allow more time to complete your journey.

    To help you travel with confidence, please visit our dedicated Coronavirus travel advice page.

    You can find the latest travel advice for each Train Operating Company by clicking on the below links:

     

    Advice on face coverings:

    Across Britain, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. However, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet. Train operators are still encouraging the wearing of face coverings if you can, as a courtesy to others.

    When planning your journey, please check the latest government advice. You can find more information about this by checking the appropriate government website for EnglandScotland and Wales.

    Check before you travel:

    You can check your journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

    Where timetables are not yet confirmed or where there is known disruption, the journey in the Journey Planner will carry a yellow warning triangle, with a link available to find out more details.

    You can also check the National Rail Enquiries Informed Traveller webpage for more details on longer term timetable availability.
