Southeastern TrainThe forecast is for heavy snowfall on Friday afternoon and overnight into Saturday, and our staff will continue to work around the clock to run as many trains as possible.

We will continue to run a revised timetable on Friday 2 March and on Saturday 3 March to provide a more reliable service for our passengers. This will mean reduced services on certain lines, the closure of some stations and changes to the times of those trains that are running.

We're advising passengers not to travel if they're able to avoid it, and on Friday afternoon in particular, please try to complete your journey earlier, as heavy snow is forecast.

We strongly advise passengers to allow extra time for their journeys, and to check before they travel using the Southeastern website, National Rail Enquiries, the free 'On Track' app or follow @Se_Railway for live Twitter updates.

Our services and timetables have been updated in the Journey Planner for Friday, and timetables for Saturday 3 March will be available from tomorrow. Plan your journey here.
