Autumn approaching changes Southeastern timetable

Southeastern are advising passengers to check changes in train times as the new leaf fall timetable commences on Sunday 29th September.

Autumn can be a challenge for rail operators as leaves falling onto the tracks can cause poor rail conditions.

The fallen leaves, compressed by passing trains, become slippery and are difficult to remove from the tracks. The conditions on the tracks is a lot like black ice on the roads. In the mornings, with added frosty and cold conditions, the leaves can also affect the trains running speed.

Starting the early morning service a few minutes earlier helps to minimise the knock-on effect of any delays and allows drivers time to adapt to the driving conditions.

The autumn timetable will run from 29th September to 7th December 2013.
