London Northwestern Railway, along with the rest of the rail industry, are working to support efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for essential travel.

How is this affecting the train service?

London Northwestern Railway will operate a reduced timetable to ensure that vital train services for key workers can keep running throughout a prolonged coronavirus outbreak.

Additionally, trains on the following routes are suspended until further notice and a replacement bus service will shuttle between these stations:

  • Bedford and Bletchley
  • St Albans Abbey and Watford Junction - customers may also use Arriva Bus route 321


The amended timetable and more information from London Northwestern Railway can be found here.

More information, including a Q&A and refund details can be found on our Coronavirus page.

Check before you travel:
You are advised to check your journey up to and including Friday 3 April using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner
