Christmas Day rail information

South West Trains and Island Line will run no services on Christmas Day or Boxing Day. The railway does not close down over the holiday period so the conductor rail will remain "live" and Network Rail may run engineering or maintenance trains.

Trains update for Xmas & Boxing Day

South West Trains will run a near normal Saturday service on December 27th & 28th. Some extra “morning peak” trains will run and there will be alterations to some other early morning service. Many trains will run with more coaches than normal.

There are no trains running on the Cross Country service either on Christmas or Boxing Day. There will be no services from Reading to Guildford on December 27th or 28th either. The Bournemouth to Manchester services will be diverted and not call at Coventry or Birmingham International.
