Autumn Conditions

Autumn conditions including wet weather combined with leaves on the line can have a big impact on our services.

The residue caused by squashed leaves can make the tracks slippery in a similar way to black ice on the roads. 

Our ultra-modern trains are all fitted with devices that spray sand on to the tracks to provide extra grip but despite this, sometimes our drivers need to adapt the way they drive and slow down which can have a knock on impact on other trains and cause delays and cancellations. 

We would encourage customers travelling this autumn to plan their journeys accordingly and check before they travel.
