Planned improvement works

From time to time, often at weekends or public holidays, Southern Railway have to make alterations to train services, usually for planned Improvement works.

For details of any planned changes to train times over the coming weeks please check our Improvement works page.

Create your own timetable with MyTimes®

You can create a personalised timetable for up to 3 separate departure or arrival stations and can select the days, dates and travel times to suit you. You can also personalise the timetable further to show all or some intermediate stations or the services of particular Train Operating Companies.  Its quick and easy to do and helps reduce waste by not picking up a booklet at the station.
