Public consultation opens for timetable changes from 9 December 2018

South Western Railway will be making some major changes to the train services it plans in the December 2018 timetable. The proposals have been developed with extensive input from customers and stakeholders who have asked for:

• Added peak capacity and faster service.
• Earlier and later trains.
• More Sunday services.

These are just some of the benefits you will see when the timetable begins on 9 December 2018.

We really value your feedback – indeed have received and responded to plenty of queries since the announcement of the change of operator. We invite you to review the proposals for your area and provide any comments you may have via email to All of these will be reviewed and considered to help shape the new patterns of service and to form the final consultation document that will be put to the Department for Transport and Network Rail. Unfortunately we cannot respond individually to your queries, however please be assured all of them will be considered when putting our final proposals together.

We plan to undertake some face to face meetings at key locations where you will be able to meet the team and ask questions. We will send an invitation to these as soon as we as they have been agreed.

This timetable consultation is a major step on South Western Railway’s journey towards the delivery of improvements to services that we know customers want to see. Please download the consultation document and related timetables at:
