Southeastern services will operate as normal from tomorrow (November 8) after some disruption today despite strike action being postponed.

A revised train service is running today and trains will finish much earlier than they usually do.

Southeastern is asking passengers to check their journey before travelling on its website or on Twitter @Se_Railway for details of their last train.

There are no services on the Medway Valley and Sheerness Lines, or to/from Cannon Street today.

The strike action planned for 5, 7 and 9 November has been called off. But Southeastern says due to the late notice of the cancellation, it can  still only able to run an amended timetable….

Southeastern says: “Railway services are built in complex, inter-related IT-based systems, including the timetable, fleet, crew schedules and staff rosters.

Reverting the timetables, crews and staff rosters back to a full timetable can take a number of days in planning and implementation, which is usually done weeks in advance.”

RMT, ASLEF and TSSA unions have held a number of strike days this year in a dispute over conditions, safety and pay.


  1. No Peter you won’t be getting your bus pass anytime soon.67 at the earliest, thanks to George Osborne.I had to wait 5 years.
    As for cars, what timetable is there when you take an eternity to get round the M25, and that’s on a good day, when no one is up a gantry or has stuck themselves to the tarmac.
    Here’s an idea, have a bus lane on the M25, which will increase congestion for cars and will encourage modal shift to buses.
