UPDATE: Due to the lockdown advice, temporary changes have been introduced to a number of rural train services as well as ticket office opening hours at some stations from Monday 30 March 2020. Click here to find out more.

With the government restrictions on travel resulting from the current coronavirus outbreak, the number of customers travelling on our services has reduced substantially, and it is no longer sensible for us to provide the usual levels of capacity on our train service. At the same time, we know that our services are critical to people who need to get to work to provide essential goods and services.
With this in mind, in line with other train operators, we have developed a temporary train plan which will significantly reduce overall capacity, but will still allow people who need to, to reach their destinations throughout the day.
This train plan will be implemented from start of service on Monday 23rd March, and will run until further notice. A summary of the train plan is as follows:
