ASLEF have announced the suspension of industrial action so the full timetable on Southern and Gatwick Express train services will be restored from Tuesday 24 January. Until then, Gatwick Express train services will operate to a reduced half-hourly frequency and will run between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport only.

RMT strike action is planned to take place on Monday 23 January. Please visit the Southern website for the latest information.

To allow Network Rail to carry out essential engineering work, a number of late night/early morning services will not run. Check our timetable for full details.
