Train operator affected
Thameslink
Description

A fault with the signalling system at City Thameslink is causing disruption to journeys between London St Pancras International and London Blackfriars. As a result, trains may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected until the end of the day. 

Customer Advice:

Please allow plenty of extra time to complete your journey if travelling between London Blackfriars and London St Pancras International. You may need to use multiple trains or alternative routes to complete your journey.

What is happening with the train service?

The Thameslink service which runs between Gatwick Airport and Bedford via Redhill will be suspended. You should use alternative Thameslink services which are running to complete your journey.

The services which run between Horsham and Peterborough will call additionally at Earlswood and Salfords. Please note these are also being further delayed due to a speed restriction over defective track in the Purley area.

Delays and short notice cancellations may still occur on other Thameslink services, so please check National Rail journey planners to see if your train is running.

Ticket Acceptance

Your ticket is being accepted on the following routes at no additional cost:

Across London

  • London Underground via any reasonable route. Includes district line from Wimbledon.
  • London Buses across Central London and between Elstree & Borehamwood and Sutton.
  • Elizabeth line between Farringdon and Abbey Wood

Can you tell me more about the incident?

Thameslink have been advised of a fault with the signalling system at City Thameslink affecting Northbound services. A special method of working has been implemented, but to try and mitigate further delay and congestion some services will be cancelled. Network Rail engineers are aware and will attend at the end of service to repair the issue.

In addition to this problem, there was another signalling fault at London Blackfriars. Unlike the issue at City Thameslink, this was directly affecting trains travelling southbound towards London Bridge and Elephant & Castle. Network Rail engineers as of 13:11 declared that the issue had been fixed, so southbound trains can run as normal.

Train operator affected
ScotRail
Description

Recent disruption has been affecting ScotRail customers, so a temporary timetable is being introduced that will provide greater certainty and reliability for those travelling.

Please check your journey before you travel as your train times may have changed.

Alterations to the timetable: 

You can find the temporary timetables for Monday to Saturday here.

On Sunday 29 May and Sunday 5 June, the Journey Planner will not show the amended timetable until the day of travel. Please check the Journey Planner before you start your journey. ScotRail are working on the timetables for Sundays from Sunday 12 June and they will be available on the website as soon as possible. 

Why are ScotRail operating a reduced timetable?

ScotRail have been relying on drivers working overtime or on their rest days to run a normal timetable, as the pandemic meant that training new drivers was significantly delayed. Without COVID and that impact on training, ScotRail would have trained around an extra 130 drivers today.

Following an announcement by the drivers’ union ASLEF that it will ballot for industrial action over pay, a significant number of drivers have been declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working. This has resulted in the recent disruption and the need to introduce a temporary timetable going forward.

Check before you travel:

You can check your journey for travel on Monday to Saturday until Saturday 11 June using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

​​​​​If you are travelling on Sunday 29 May or Sunday 5 June, please check before you start your journey, as the timetable will be updated on the day. 

For any dates from Sunday 12 June, please check back nearer to the time of travel as journey planners are not yet reflecting the reduced timetable.

Let's get back on track.

Train Operating Companies are continuing to work hard to offer you a safe and reliable journey.

A new timetable has been introduced by the Train Operators during May as normal, which will be in place for several months.

However, some trains may still be subject to short notice alterations due to the continuing effects of Coronavirus on staffing levels. We continue to recommend that you check your journey before you begin travelling, and allow more time to complete your journey.

To help you travel with confidence, please visit our dedicated Coronavirus travel advice page.

You can find the latest travel advice for each Train Operating Company by clicking on the below links:

 

Advice on face coverings:

Across Britain, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. However, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet. Train operators are still encouraging the wearing of face coverings if you can, as a courtesy to others.

When planning your journey, please check the latest government advice. You can find more information about this by checking the appropriate government website for EnglandScotland and Wales.
