Change to our trains

As part of our commitment to improving seat availability across as many of our trains as possible, serving London, we are set to embark on a programme of alterations to our Meridian trains.

In preparation of our December 2008 timetable where we plan to run additional services we will be moving carriages between trains. Our smaller Meridian trains will get an extra carriage and some larger Meridian trains will lose one.

By carrying out this work we will be improving our capacity on our smaller, busy trains in the peak hours where it is needed. Overall, we will reduce overcrowding at peak times.

By 28 April 2008, the amendments will have been made. These trains will then serve at these times until 11 December 2008.

Details of train alterations are noted in the timetable below.
