Train timetable to return to normal tomorrow

First published in News by , Chief Reporter

TRAINS will return to normal from tomorrow, following a reduced timetable during the snow.

South West Trains has announced that all lines will reopen, with trains calling at all stations, although some trains may have fewer coaches than normal, and be subject to alteration.

Passengers are still advised to check for updates in advance of travel, as freezing temperatures are forecast to continue for the next 48 hours and services will continue to be reviewed.

Test trains will run over lines which have been closed over the last few days because of bad weather. Tim Shoveller, South West Trains – Network Rail Alliance Managing Director, said: "Severe weather affects all forms of transport and access to our network also depends on road conditions which affect the travel of our passengers and our staff.

"The past few days have been challenging. I appreciate our passengers have faced longer and less comfortable door to door journeys than normal and I would like to thank them for their continued patience and understanding.

"The revised timetables we put in place have worked effectively and helped significantly to minimise the disruption. Our train and station staff, customer service teams and the engineers responsible for track and signalling have all who worked tirelessly, often in freezing conditions, to keep the network open.

"Tomorrow, we will be restoring our normal weekday timetable, however we would still advise passengers to check the situation before they travel in view of the current weather situation. We will continue to monitor the conditions and provide passengers with the most up-to-date information to allow them to plan ahead."
