Rail disruption: Southern railways

Southern Railways have shared this with us about their plans for Monday - you can find more information on their website here on via National Rail Enquiries on 0845 748 4950

We have closely monitored the storm that is approaching which we now expect to reach and affect our region between 0100-0900 tomorrow (Monday 28 October). We are advised that there is a strong likelihood that this will mean that trees and other debris may fall on and obstruct railway lines.

As a result of this, we will not be running any services tomorrow until the storm has passed our region, and Network Rail has been able to assess any damage from the storm and confirm that lines are clear of debris.

It is therefore highly unlikely that we will run any services before at least 0900 tomorrow morning and even when we are cleared to run, the first services will be very disjointed given the difficulties in getting trains and their crew to the right locations.

We will therefore focus our efforts on providing a service as soon as we can tomorrow morning, but we anticipate that this will be a difficult and disruptive start to the week for our passengers.

Our website,, will be kept updated with news as it is available, but passengers are advised to check with National Rail Enquiries on 08457 48 49 50 before travelling.
