  • If you feel unwell while on the train - get off at the next stop and use the station Help Point

Sometimes, we have to alter our services during very hot weather. This can mean a change to service provision and/or speed restrictions put in place to minimise stressing of the rails. Click here to find out more.

The new Southern summer timetable is now in effect

We've made more changes than usual as part of the summer timetable change, so please check carefully to see if your train has been affected. We believe these additional changes will further improve performance overall. The completion of these changes took longer than anticipated, which unfortunately means an unavoidable delay to availability of pocket timetables at staffed stations. Timetable information is now available below, on our App (Southern On Track), and National Rail Enquiries. Please also keep an eye out for posters at stations for information on train times and dates for pocket timetables.
