Train Arrival Information and Departure times
Travelling on the Day
Before travelling please ensure you check the live travel information. This provides an overview of how each Train Operator’s trains are running across the rail network. This can be especially useful at times of last minute disruption (e.g. broken down train)
Live train information covers the following categories
- Expected departure/arrival times
- Live progress of your route whilst in transit
- All delays that may affect your service
- For platform numbers to be shown as soon as they are allocated
Alterations, Refunds & Cancellations
Most train companies offer compensation if the train that you were travelling on is delayed by more than half an hour.
If such a situation occurs whilty on your journey you should claim directly with the train company concerned.
Unfortunately compensation isn’t often paid if the disruption was notified way ahead of time, or if an emergency schedule was in operation. So compensation might not get paid for circumstances outside the rail network’s control.
Please contact The Train Line for further assistance with your claim and further information into the rail networks policies.
Are you no longer travelling on all/part of my journey or want to change the date/time of departure?
Advance Single tickets are the most low lost ticket available but are not refundable. You can make changes to the date & time of travel so long as you stick to the original route.
Also Off-Peak, Anytime & Super Off-Peak tickets are available to give you more flexibility with the time that you travel. If plans to your schedule change, you can simply request a refund online via the login portal “My booking”.
