From 7 September we're running a new timetable with more services on many routes.
New timetable from Monday 7 September
From Monday 7 September we have introduced a new timetable. 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.
Times are changingFrom 11 October, we're making some small changes to our timetable this autumn 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.

How busy is my train?
Our new SeatFinder Timetables tool allows 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.
Simply select your normal timetable from the list below to see how busy the services usually are.
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.
