The new timetable is available here.

CrossCountry

Improvements to CrossCountry services in the December timetable include:

  • The current 17 minutes past the hour departures from Birmingham New Street to Plymouth move to 12 minutes past the hour – restoring a half-hourly train service from Birmingham New Street to Bristol
  • Following improvements resulting from the major track remodelling at Derby, four weekday and five Saturday trains between Birmingham and Newcastle will run considerably faster, taking up to 30 minutes less time than currently
  • Trains on CrossCountry routes will be re-timed in the new timetable, with many faster journeys. Please check departure times carefully

Various London Northwestern Railway & West Midlands Railway routes

 
Train operator affected
London Northwestern RailwayWest Midlands Railway
Description

A shortage of train crew across the London Northwestern Railway & West Midlands Railway network is resulting in disruption to services across various routes.

Trains may be cancelled, delayed or revised. This is expected to continue until the end of the service today.

The following routes are expected to be affected:

  • Abbey line services (Watford Junction - St Albans Abbey)
  • Trent Valley services (Crewe - London Euston)
  • Northampton - London Euston
  • Northampton - Birmingham New Street
  • Birmingham Moor Street - Hereford
  • Leamington Spa - Nuneaton
  • Wolverhampton - Rugeley Trent Valley
  • Lichfield Trent Valley - Bromsgrove

Alternative travel advice

You may use your ticket on National Express West Midlands bus services via all reasonable routes.

Rail replacement transport will be put in place where there are large gaps in the service.

What's wrong?

LNR / WMR are currently experiencing high levels of late-notice sickness among senior conductor and driver teams, which is making it extremely challenging to operate the full timetable.

What are LNR / WMR doing about it?

LNR / WMR continue to train a lot of people to become drivers and conductors, with some 200 joining since 2017 and have also trained over 100 managers to be 'back up' conductors to help cover shifts. Several Driver Managers are also available to drive trains in situations like this.

Many of these support staff will be giving up their weekends to help keep services running. Others will be helping out at stations to assist you with journey planning.

Where they are unable to run a service for a significant period of time, it will arranged for tickets to be accepted on local buses services or on other train companies' routes. In some cases, rail replacement road transport will be provided. Details will be advertised at appropriate stations, on board and in the live travel update section of LNR/WMR website.

Need more information?

All routes are likely to be affected, with cancellations expected throughout the day. We advise you to avoid travelling late in the evening if you can, as lower frequencies magnify the impact of any disruption.
