Train status alerts

Get real-time updates on your train​

Sometimes the unexpected can happen, causing changes to train journeys on certain routes. You can’t plan ahead for this, but we will always keep you informed of any disruption on our network.

If more than one train on any of our routes is delayed by 15 minutes or more, we’ll update the route status in the header to let you know what impact this will have and the best way to get to where you need to be.
