We started running a new timetable on 7th September, with more services on many routes.
We introduced a new timetable on 7th September. Train times have changed and there are more frequent services on many routes. We’ve reworked our timetable to give you more space with longer trains on many services, adding over 900 extra carriages each weekday, providing 50,000 extra seats. Helping you to travel with confidence wherever you need to go. To give you more choice and space, we’ve boosted our services up to 98% of our pre-COVID timetable.

Planning a journey or buying a ticket in advance?
Network Rail has made a temporary change to how far in advance it confirms rail timetables. This is a national issue, and the majority of journeys are unaffected. More detailed information is available here. In a small number of cases, the timetable will not be confirmed until less than the usual 12-weeks before travel. Wherever possible, we've highlighted those journeys yet to be confirmed in our journey planner. You can still book tickets in advance, and our Advance fares are available up until 6pm on the day before travel. If you buy an Advance ticket for a train that is subsequently changed or cancelled, we will refund you. For details of the current dates for when these fares are available, please visit our Advance tickets page.
Times are changing
From 11 October we made some small changes to our timetable to keep trains running on time. Each autumn, approximately 50 million leaves fall onto our train tracks, meaning our drivers need more time to stop and start the trains as the wheels have less grip on the tracks. You can learn more here about what we're doing to keep our services moving, you won't beleaf it.
We are currently running our short term amended timetable which affects a small number of our stations:
|Eden Park||New Beckenham|
Our next timetable change will be on Sunday 13th December. Details are available in our journey planner now, pdf timetables will be available here close to the time.
How busy is my train?
Our new SeatFinder Timetables allow you to check in advance how busy your train might be, allowing you to plan ahead and travel with confidence.
Using train loading data from the previous week, you can quickly see which services are likely to be busy on your route, and which are a bit quieter.
SeatFinder timetables provides information for individual weekday services and includes most, but not all, of our trains. If there is no seat availability shown for your journey, it means information isn’t available for that train yet. We are working hard to bring you more information as soon as we can.
Tell us what you think by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
To plan a more immediate journey, SeatFinder information is also available on our Live Departure Boards and via the Southeastern On Track app.
