December 2018 timetable change

Train times and tickets are usually available for customers to plan and book their journeys up to 12 weeks before departure. However, for the duration of the next timetable beginning on 9th December, 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.

There will be a slight delay whilst we work on releasing Advance purchase tickets and seat reservations for all of our trains from the 9th December.

Further updates will be available shortly.

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?

If you are due to travel within the next six weeks, you can see if your journey has changed by searching our website.

If your travel date is more than six weeks in advance, you can select your travel date in the “by date” tab which will allow you 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 engineering works may affect your journey.

    Train companies affected

    Great Northern

    Routes affected

    Trains between Stevenage / Watton-at-Stone / Hertford North and Moorgate

    Description

    A fault on a train earlier today between Hertford North and Finsbury Park means some services are still being disrupted. Trains may continue to be delayed or cancelled.

    We anticipate disruption will continue until the end of service today.

    Customer Advice:
    Please check journey planners prior to departure, journey times may be extended or altered.

    To aid you on your journey, there is mutual ticket acceptance in place between Thameslink and Great Northern. Your tickets will also be valid on London Underground services on reasonable routes, and Greater Anglia between London Liverpool Street and Hertford East.

    How is this currently affecting the train service?
    Services travelling on the Hertford Loop this evening are being impacted, primarily due to a faulty train at Palmers Green.

    Teams are working hard to restore services, but please note there will be short notice alterations and cancellations to achieve as regular a service as possible. Some services where possible may terminate at London Kings Cross and restart at Finsbury Park.

    Can you tell me more about the incident?
    The 16:20 Moorgate to Stevenage developed some issues gaining power from the electric supply, this caused services to back up behind it. This impacted the 17:30 Stevenage to Moorgate service as well, therefore disrupting services in both directions.

    Trains between Stevenage / Watton-at-Stone / Hertford North and Moorgate

    Description

    A fault on a train earlier today between Hertford North and Finsbury Park means some services are still being disrupted. Trains may continue to be delayed or cancelled.

    We anticipate disruption will continue until the end of service today.

    Customer Advice:
    Please check journey planners prior to departure, journey times may be extended or altered.

    To aid you on your journey, there is mutual ticket acceptance in place between Thameslink and Great Northern. Your tickets will also be valid on London Underground services on reasonable routes, and Greater Anglia between London Liverpool Street and Hertford East.

    How is this currently affecting the train service?
    Services travelling on the Hertford Loop this evening are being impacted, primarily due to a faulty train at Palmers Green.

    Teams are working hard to restore services, but please note there will be short notice alterations and cancellations to achieve as regular a service as possible. Some services where possible may terminate at London Kings Cross and restart at Finsbury Park.

    Can you tell me more about the incident?
    The 16:20 Moorgate to Stevenage developed some issues gaining power from the electric supply, this caused services to back up behind it. This impacted the 17:30 Stevenage to Moorgate service as well, therefore disrupting services in both directions.

    The Felixstowe branch line serves the Port of Felixstowe, which is the largest container port in the UK. Network Rail are planning to build an additional track and make changes to six level crossings in the Trimley area.

    Building the additional track will help increase the capacity of the Felixstowe branch line and take lorries off the road. It will also mean more reliable journeys for passengers travelling between Ipswich and Felixstowe.
