We're running a reduced timetable

From August 14 until further notice, we're introducing a reduced timetable on our services. This is due to the current industrial relations climate which has resulted in severe staff shortages in some grades through increased sickness levels, as well as the majority of drivers making themselves unavailable for overtime in a co-ordinated fashion, and at short notice.

As a result of this, customers have faced multiple short-notice cancellations on our network which has had a severe impact on their plans.

The reduced timetable is being introduced to ensure a reliable service is delivered so our customers can travel with greater certainty. This decision was not taken lightly, and we are sorry for the enormous frustration and inconvenience this will cause.

We urge the rail unions to engage in meaningful industry reform discussions around modernising working practices and developing a railway fit for the 21st century and we look forward to further talks on this.

When will the new timetable be confirmed?

Whilst the new timetable is finalised, we’ve temporarily suspended ticket sales and closed reservations from 14 August to 11 September – this is to minimise the number of people disrupted. We're working hard to publish our timetables and release tickets as soon as possible. Click here to check the table below to view our expected release dates.

Which trains will be running?

We plan to run four trains an hour from London Euston, one to each of Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham. Every two hours, we will run through to Edinburgh, via the West Midlands. There will be a shuttle service between Crewe and Holyhead, plus a limited through service between Euston and Chester of one a day. This amended timetable will be in place until further notice, and we will continue to monitor and review the situation.

My train is cancelled - what are my options?

If you’ve already booked to travel with us from 14 August onwards and your train is cancelled, your ticket will be accepted on the Avanti West Coast service before or after your original booked train. Alternatively, you can claim a full, fee-free refund from your point of purchase if you no longer wish to travel due to the amended timetable.

Your guide to the table below

Travel date: the day you’re planning to travel on one of our trains.

Timetable in journey planners? These are the trains that we have confirmed will be running on that date, and so are available to view in online journey planners (visible once you've searched for tickets or train times). This will help if you’re planning a journey, or if you have already bought a flexible ticket and you’re planning which service to take. At this stage, you can’t buy a new ticket.

Tickets available to purchase? Fares are ready for you to browse and buy, and reservations are available as well. So that we can make sure the timetable is spot on in the system, tickets won’t be released first thing and so we recommend searching in the afternoon of the released date.

You can also plan your journey before departure using our Journey Planner.
