Southern plans to restore “full train service” on Tuesday 24 January


Southern has published information on its plans to restore the timetable, following the suspension of ASLEF driver action but bearing in mind Monday’s RMT conductor strike.

For this weekend (21 / 22 Jan) Southern is warning that services may still be subject to alteration, and is advising checking National Rail’s journey planner for the latest information (see links below).

For Monday (23 January), Southern has republished the reduced timetable for Reigate and Redhill that has been in place during the drivers’ overtime ban.  Under that, there’ll be no direct Southern services from Reigate to London, so it would be a case of taking a Southern or GWR service and changing, such as at Redhill.  

As before, the reduced timetable also cuts down the Southern services available at Redhill, but adds some extra Thameslink trains. Southern has confirmed that Thameslink services will be unaffected by the industrial action.

Southern’s webpage says that National Rail’s journey planner “will be updated with the service we intend to operate from around 02:00 the day before”.

Southern warns that for both the weekend and Monday, information can change rapidly “so it is very important to check again before you travel”.

The operator says it plans to restore its “full train service” on Tuesday 24 January.
