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.
