SouthWest Trains Timetable Consultation

South Western Railway and Network Rail have launched a consultation about their plans for the post-Pandemic timetable from December 2022 onwards. This consultation is based on an assumption that considerably fewer people will be commuting going forward and would result in a reduced service from Ashtead station.

Covid restrictions have resulted in train operating companies reducing the number of trains, and timetables are changing. Rather than publish a timetable here for each company it is safer and more accurate to visit the company's web site or the National Rail Enquiries website.

However, it seems things are changing and Southern have just published their time table with effect from 4th January 2022 until further notice. It is available to view on https://timetables.southernrai...

In addition, we have been told an additional peak time departure at 07:45 from Epsom will run to London Bridge. 

Rail industry introduces new Passenger Assist Mobile Application

This week, the rail industry has introduced a new Passenger Assistance mobile phone application to support customers who require assistance when travelling by train. The app means customers can choose to request assistance via their smartphone nationwide.

The app, which has been developed by the Rail Delivery Group and UK technology company Transreport, will provide an additional option for customers but will not replace Govia Thameslink Railway’s existing support for assistance requests via phone/textphone, online or email.
The app enables customers to:
• Make a request for assistance for their rail journey
• Manage their personal details – including a record of the type of assistance required
• View their travel history
• Browse rail journeys via the online journey planner.
