As a result of billions of pounds of investment in the rail network, and in new trains and services, Network Rail are temporarily changing how far in advance train timetables can be confirmed. The May 2018 timetable change is the largest in living memory, needing the rescheduling of almost four million services – 600% more than normal.

Train times and tickets are usually available for customers to plan and book their journeys up to 12 weeks before departure. However, possibly for the duration of the next timetable beginning on 20th May, some may not be available until closer to the date of departure.

The majority of weekday services will be unaffected, although journeys at weekends are likely to see changes to the expected timetable.

What this means for buying tickets

With only a small number of trains affected by engineering works, we want customers to continue planning their journeys with confidence and CrossCountry have put in place a series of measures to reassure them.

Purchasing tickets between 12 and 6 weeks prior to departure

Customers will still be able to purchase Anytime and Off-Peak train tickets 12 weeks before departure, however CrossCountry Advance tickets may not be available until six weeks before departure due to timetables not being finalised.

Purchasing tickets on other operators

If a customer purchases a ticket more than six weeks before their journey, they should check back with the train operator they will be travelling with at the six weeks mark to see if their train time has been altered. If so, and they then do not wish to travel, they can request a refund from their original retailer.

Purchasing tickets for CrossCountry services

If you booked between 12 and 6 weeks before your travel date and your journey has been affected, you can travel on an alternative CrossCountry train two hours either side of your original service, although any seat reservation on the original train cannot be honoured on the other service.

How can I find out if my journey will be affected?

To see when engineering work is happening, you can select your travel date in to the “by date” tab below to search for the work being carried out on the network. If engineering work is happening on your travel date you will see a list of results, which you can select to view more information.

You can also use our route map to see which of these works could affect your journey.

    Industrial action to affect Northern on Thursday 24 and Saturday 26 May

    Train companies affected

    Northern

    Routes affected

    Various Northern routes

    Description

    The RMT Union have announced strike action that will affect Northern services on Thursday 24 and Saturday 26 May.

    On Thursday, the majority of available trains will operate between 07:00 and 19:00 as Northern focus on running as many trains as they can to get you into work and home again.

    On Saturday, most trains will run between 07:00 and 17:00 as Northern work to get you to and from leisure destinations across the region.

    As the overall number of trains running will be reduced, trains and any replacement buses are expected to be extremely busy. Please allow extra time for journeys, plan carefully and consider whether travel is necessary.

    Information provided by Northern on the strikes, including ticket acceptance with other operators and travel on alternative dates, is available here.

    Check before you travel:

    Amended Thameslink and Great Northern service

    Train companies affected

    Great Northern, Thameslink

    Routes affected

    All Thameslink and Great Northern routes

    Description

    Short-term timetable amendments mean fewer trains are able to run. Trains running across the Thameslink and Great Northern network are running as normal but some services may still be revised.

    Customer Advice:
    The majority of the new timetable services are in operation but services on some routes are being progressively phased into the timetable during the course of the summer.

    New carriages need to be introduced to operate the service. Some of these carriages are currently stored off the network. To get them to what will be their home depots; Thameslink and Great Northern must also move some of the existing trains off the network and switch over to the new rolling stock.

    The majority of this has been carried out over the weekend, but it is not possible to change over the entire fleet in this short time frame without risking disruption to services. The remaining new trains will be brought onto the network as the summer progresses.

    Customers may use Greater Anglia, London Underground and London Overground via any reasonable route until further notice.

    How will this impact the train service?

    Whilst Thameslink and Great Northern go through this transitional period; the long term impact of all the changes they are making will enable the service to have greater resilience and reliability but also aid in minimising the ripple effect of any incidents that may occur across the network. The full benefits of the timetable change will become apparent in the coming weeks as they progressively expand the services.

    Where possible, the gradual introduction will be limited to services that previously didn't run and where other services will still be available. Thameslink and Great Northern are doing everything possible to limit the impact such as removing quieter services and providing additional replacement bus services where necessary.

    The four main routes that will be gradually phased in are listed below:

    • Peterborough to Horsham via London St Pancras International
    • Luton to Rainham via London Bridge
    • Luton to Orpington via London St Pancras International
    • Bedford to Brighton via London St Pancras International

    It is anticipated there will be significant gaps in service at Higham station, where a bus replacement service will operate linking Higham and Strood with onward connections provided by Southeastern Highspeed services to and from Gravesend and London St Pancras International.

    Thameslink and Great Northern are also working with Southeastern to provide alterative trains.

    Please plan travel in advance by using journey planners, further updates will be provided as and when they are received.

    I want to know more?
    Thameslink and Great Northern have been painstakingly preparing for this significant alteration to the timetables and every effort has been made to prepare for this. Thameslink and Great Northern are currently in the process of introducing one of the biggest changes to the railway timetable since the 1970s by providing more route choices, new trains and better connections.

    Thameslink and Great Northern have had to redeploy large numbers of trains and drivers for the 3,600 services now due to run every day which is 400 more than before. This is a huge logistical undertaking that they have been working toward with their partners at Rail Delivery Group, Network Rail as well as the Department for Transport and other train operators to deliver this industry changing programme.

    As part of the process to get trains to where they need to be and ensure that drivers have full awareness of and are fully trained on their new routes, there will be temporary changes put in place to allow these movements to take place. These could be revisions to the calling patterns of services and in some instances cancellations, however, where possible they aim to minimise the effect this will have by facilitating this during quieter off peak periods and also overnight when services are not as busy.

    In addition to this, the national timetable planning process as has happened across the entire national rail network has been significantly delayed. Railway timetables are normally published 12 weeks in advance, however, due to the vast undertaking of rewriting the timetable from start to accommodate the large network; this was not completed for Govia Thameslink Railway until 3.5 weeks ago. Part of this process is defining the scope of engineering work to the track, which affects the deployment of trains and train crew and the access they have to train maintenance depots. This means they have had less time than normal to re-plan the driver allocations as well as the train stabling and maintenance requirements to which work is continuously on-going.

    Thameslink and Great Northern thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience caused during the upcoming weeks as they work hard to introduce the industry leading timetable, in so, modernising the railway, creating faster journeys across London and creating space for an additional 50,000 passengers daily into London.

    Disruption between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International expected until 14:00

    Train companies affected

    Southeastern

    Routes affected

    Between Faversham / Margate / Ramsgate / Dover Priory / Ashford International and London St Pancras International

    Description

    Urgent repairs to the track between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International means fewer trains are able to run. Services between these stations may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

    A normal service is expected to resume by 14:00.

    What's happened?
    --------------------
    Emergency engineering work is taking place in one tunnel between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International meaning trains can use only one line to travel in either direction. Network Rail staff are working to rectify the issue, with the line currently expected to reopen at approximately 13:30.

    How does this affect my journey?
    ------------------------------------
    Some High Speed services between Faversham and London St Pancras may not run Ebbsfleet and St Pancras. There may be delays to other High Speed trains, as trains are being held at either end and using the tunnel that is open in either direction. Southeastern anticipate running a normal service for this evening's peak period.

    Project Information:

    Continuing every weekend for the foreseeable future, Network Rail engineers will be working to complete the upgrade of the 25-mile stretch of track between Manchester and Preston via Salford Crescent to support the introduction of better trains.

    The project was due to complete back in December 2017, but old mine workings, running sand and varying layers of rock have significantly hampered the installation of hundreds of steel columns needed to carry the power cables for the introduction of electric trains. New engineering solutions have been required to resolve the problems which has included using steel cylinders and filling them with concrete to deal with poor ground conditions.

    Industrial action to affect Northern on Thursday 24 and Saturday 26 May

    Train companies affected

    Northern

    Routes affected

    Various Northern routes

    Description

    The RMT Union have announced strike action that will affect Northern services on Thursday 24 and Saturday 26 May.

    On Thursday, the majority of available trains will operate between 07:00 and 19:00 as Northern focus on running as many trains as they can to get you into work and home again.

    On Saturday, most trains will run between 07:00 and 17:00 as Northern work to get you to and from leisure destinations across the region.

    As the overall number of trains running will be reduced, trains and any replacement buses are expected to be extremely busy. Please allow extra time for journeys, plan carefully and consider whether travel is necessary.

    Information provided by Northern on the strikes, including ticket acceptance with other operators and travel on alternative dates, is available here.

    Amended Thameslink and Great Northern service

    Train companies affected

    Great Northern, Thameslink

    Routes affected

    All Thameslink and Great Northern routes

    Description

    Short-term timetable amendments mean fewer trains are able to run. Trains running across the Thameslink and Great Northern network are running as normal but some services may still be revised.

    Customer Advice:
    The majority of the new timetable services are in operation but services on some routes are being progressively phased into the timetable during the course of the summer.

    New carriages need to be introduced to operate the service. Some of these carriages are currently stored off the network. To get them to what will be their home depots; Thameslink and Great Northern must also move some of the existing trains off the network and switch over to the new rolling stock.

    The majority of this has been carried out over the weekend, but it is not possible to change over the entire fleet in this short time frame without risking disruption to services. The remaining new trains will be brought onto the network as the summer progresses.

    Customers may use Greater Anglia, London Underground and London Overground via any reasonable route until further notice.

    How will this impact the train service?

    Whilst Thameslink and Great Northern go through this transitional period; the long term impact of all the changes they are making will enable the service to have greater resilience and reliability but also aid in minimising the ripple effect of any incidents that may occur across the network. The full benefits of the timetable change will become apparent in the coming weeks as they progressively expand the services.

    Where possible, the gradual introduction will be limited to services that previously didn't run and where other services will still be available. Thameslink and Great Northern are doing everything possible to limit the impact such as removing quieter services and providing additional replacement bus services where necessary.

    The four main routes that will be gradually phased in are listed below:

    • Peterborough to Horsham via London St Pancras International
    • Luton to Rainham via London Bridge
    • Luton to Orpington via London St Pancras International
    • Bedford to Brighton via London St Pancras International

    It is anticipated there will be significant gaps in service at Higham station, where a bus replacement service will operate linking Higham and Strood with onward connections provided by Southeastern Highspeed services to and from Gravesend and London St Pancras International.

    Thameslink and Great Northern are also working with Southeastern to provide alterative trains.

    Please plan travel in advance by using journey planners, further updates will be provided as and when they are received.

    I want to know more?
    Thameslink and Great Northern have been painstakingly preparing for this significant alteration to the timetables and every effort has been made to prepare for this. Thameslink and Great Northern are currently in the process of introducing one of the biggest changes to the railway timetable since the 1970s by providing more route choices, new trains and better connections.

    Thameslink and Great Northern have had to redeploy large numbers of trains and drivers for the 3,600 services now due to run every day which is 400 more than before. This is a huge logistical undertaking that they have been working toward with their partners at Rail Delivery Group, Network Rail as well as the Department for Transport and other train operators to deliver this industry changing programme.

    As part of the process to get trains to where they need to be and ensure that drivers have full awareness of and are fully trained on their new routes, there will be temporary changes put in place to allow these movements to take place. These could be revisions to the calling patterns of services and in some instances cancellations, however, where possible they aim to minimise the effect this will have by facilitating this during quieter off peak periods and also overnight when services are not as busy.

    In addition to this, the national timetable planning process as has happened across the entire national rail network has been significantly delayed. Railway timetables are normally published 12 weeks in advance, however, due to the vast undertaking of rewriting the timetable from start to accommodate the large network; this was not completed for Govia Thameslink Railway until 3.5 weeks ago. Part of this process is defining the scope of engineering work to the track, which affects the deployment of trains and train crew and the access they have to train maintenance depots. This means they have had less time than normal to re-plan the driver allocations as well as the train stabling and maintenance requirements to which work is continuously on-going.

    Thameslink and Great Northern thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience caused during the upcoming weeks as they work hard to introduce the industry leading timetable, in so, modernising the railway, creating faster journeys across London and creating space for an additional 50,000 passengers daily into London.

    Disruption between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International expected until 14:00

    Train companies affected

    Southeastern

    Routes affected

    Between Faversham / Margate / Ramsgate / Dover Priory / Ashford International and London St Pancras International

    Description

    Urgent repairs to the track between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International means fewer trains are able to run. Services between these stations may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

    A normal service is expected to resume by 14:00.

    What's happened?
    --------------------
    Emergency engineering work is taking place in one tunnel between Ebbsfleet International and Stratford International meaning trains can use only one line to travel in either direction. Network Rail staff are working to rectify the issue, with the line currently expected to reopen at approximately 13:30.

    How does this affect my journey?
    ------------------------------------
    Some High Speed services between Faversham and London St Pancras may not run Ebbsfleet and St Pancras. There may be delays to other High Speed trains, as trains are being held at either end and using the tunnel that is open in either direction. Southeastern anticipate running a normal service for this evening's peak period.

    Project Information:

    Continuing every weekend for the foreseeable future, Network Rail engineers will be working to complete the upgrade of the 25-mile stretch of track between Manchester and Preston via Salford Crescent to support the introduction of better trains.

    The project was due to complete back in December 2017, but old mine workings, running sand and varying layers of rock have significantly hampered the installation of hundreds of steel columns needed to carry the power cables for the introduction of electric trains. New engineering solutions have been required to resolve the problems which has included using steel cylinders and filling them with concrete to deal with poor ground conditions.
