Changes to train times

 

Temporary changes to train timetables

Normally, the timetable for any particular day is confirmed 12 weeks in advance. For a temporary period Network Rail isn’t able to do this, instead confirming timetables 6 weeks in advance. Customers can read about why this has occurred here. This means that for some routes online journey planners, including National Rail Enquiries, will not be completely accurate until 6 weeks before travel.

What does this mean for customers?

For the overwhelming majority of customers there is no impact, particularly if they travel Mondays to Fridays other than in the late evening.

If customers would like to receive updates about the confirmation of timetables relevant to them, they can sign up for weekly alerts here.

Timetables

Where engineering work is taking place, details about the train times and schedules for any replacement buses will not be available until 6 weeks before. Be aware that the normal timetable will show in journey planners up until this point. Where we are aware that the timetable is not yet correct, the National Rail Enquiries journey planner will show a yellow warning triangle against the trains concerned.

Advance tickets

Customers are advised to try and book as normal. Advance tickets for many routes will still go on sale 12 weeks in advance, but where they don’t will be available from 6 weeks before the date of travel. Many train companies let customers sign up through their website to receive an email when Advance tickets go on sale. National Rail Enquiries also has information about the latest availability of Advance tickets, click here.

Where it is not possible to book tickets 12 weeks in advance as usual, train operators will still offer the same range of discounted Advance tickets – they will just go on sale later.

If customers buy a ticket on a train that is subsequently cancelled, rescheduled, or where a seat reservation will not be honoured, they can decide not to travel and have a full refund with no administration fee.

Where Advance tickets have not yet gone on sale, customers can still buy Anytime, Off‐Peak and Super Off‐Peak tickets where they are available. If customers buy one of these and later discover a cheaper Advance ticket on sale for the same journey, they should book the Advance ticket and ask for a refund on the original ticket – there will be no admin fee.

Q&A’s:

Is my journey affected?

  • When booking through National Rail Enquires, if the route selected has not been confirmed, a notice will appear at the top if the page informing you that there may be a change to your journey.
  • While most of the time information shown will remain the same, if you want to keep updated on any changes please sign up to our email list here: www.nationalrail.co.uk/timetablechangealert

How do I know if I’ve got the best ticket?

  • If people buy a ticket for a service affected by this change and then, at a later date advance tickets are made available which are at a cheaper fare, customers should book the advance fare for that service and then request a fee-free refund on their original ticket.

Which services are affected?

  • You will still be able to purchase 3 months in advance. When booking through National Rail Enquires where the service has not been confirmed a notification will appear. While you can still book tickets, these routes are subject to change. If changes occur and you no longer want to use your ticket you will be entitled to a full refund.

I still want to book three months in advance. What should I do?

  • You will still be able to purchase 3 months in advance. When booking through National Rail Enquires where the service has not been confirmed a notification will appear. While you can still book tickets these routes are subject to change. If changes occur and you no longer want to use your ticket you will be entitled to a full refund.

Why is this happening?

  • The core timetable changes twice a year, in May and December. As a result of billions of pounds of investment in the rail network, and in new trains and services, the May 2018 timetable change is the largest in living memory, needing the rescheduling of almost four million services – some 600% more than normal.
  • The scale of this change was being managed by the rail industry, which was also taking into account unexpected alterations to infrastructure projects, to the introduction of new trains and to new services by some operators. There was then a significant delay to the major electrification work between Manchester and Preston. This meant that the Network Rail timetable planning teams have been unable to deliver the new timetable within the usual timescales.
