This winter, we’ll be running a Winter Weather Timetable, but only on days when we expect ice and light snow which freezes around the electric rail, preventing trains from drawing power or being able to move with any speed. And in the worst cases, preventing them from being able to move at all.

When this timetable is in place most train times will remain the same, but trains won’t split or attach so you may need to change trains. Please allow extra time for your journey.

The few weekday trains that will be retimed are: 

  • 08.21 Tunbridge Wells to London Charing Cross will depart 1 minute later from Tunbridge Wells, High Brooms, Tonbridge and Hildenborough
  • 13.25 London Victoria to Ramsgate will depart 1 minute later from Ashford International, Wye, Chilham and Chartham
  • 07.45 London Charing Cross to Hastings will depart 3 minutes earlier from Tonbridge, High Brooms then depart 1 minute later from Tunbridge Wells
  • 19.18 Dover Priory to London Victoria will depart 1 minute later from Faversham, Teynham, Sittingbourne, Newington and Rainham

We aim to give you a minimum of 24 hours’ notice on our website that the timetable will change. But we’ll also let you know that we may be changing the timetable 3 days’ in advance if we can, to give you time to plan. 

In heavier snow, a Severe Winter Weather Timetable is likely to run, and you can view these timetables here.

Sometimes mother nature has other ideas and the weather changes from the forecast, which means we may need to change this planned timetable. We’ll do all we can to keep you up-to-date.

Check your journey up to 24 hours in advance via our journey planner. You can also follow us on Twitter for updates @SE_Railway #SEwinter
