Times are changing this autumn
Short term amended timetable
You wouldn’t think the humble leaf could cause so much trouble. 50 million leaves fall onto our train tracks every autumn. When mixed with rain and squashed by train wheels, they form a slippery layer on the rails like black ice.
Our drivers need more time to stop and start the trains as the wheels have less grip on the tracks, and so we need to make some changes to our timetable.
Visit our autumn page to find out how we prepare.
This autumn, we’ll be running an amended weekday timetable affecting Off-Peak* metro services, but only on days when we expect the weather to be at its worst.
We aim to give you 3 days' notice before the amended timetable will be in place, and you can check your journey via our journey planner, National Rail, or the Southeastern app. You can follow us on Twitter for updates @SE_Railway #SEautumn.

|Elmstead Woods||Westcombe Park|
*The amended timetable affects Monday-Friday Off-Peak metro services towards London. Some morning Peak services leaving London towards these stations are also affected.
The amended timetable that will run on days when the weather is forecast to be particularly bad are on our website now, so you can plan for the changes.
We aim to give you 3 days’ advance notice that the amended timetable will be in place for the following week. The stations that the amended timetable applies to will display a poster detailing the amended timetable for the week, departure screens on platforms will show the services that are running, and announcements will be made.

On the weekly call, Network Rail advise us if weather is forecast to be particularly bad and that we need to put in place the amended timetable for the next week.
