Passengers invited to have their say on new London Northwestern Railway timetable

Press release   •   Jan 02, 2020 09:30 GMT

Passengers are being invited to have their say on the new London Northwestern Railway (LNR) timetable at a series of on-station events in Hertfordshire this month.

The new timetable - which came into effect on Sunday 15 December - brought with it 16 additional carriages for services to and from London Euston, with 24 more to follow in the next few months.

Now, passengers are being invited to meet senior managers from LNR face-to-face at a series of 'Whistle Stop Tour' events this month.

Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for LNR, said:

"We know that over the last few months some of our passengers have been making journeys which have not been as good as they should have been.

"In December we simplified our timetable and introduce extra carriages in order to improve the reliability of our services and the overall experience for our customers.

"Now the timetable has been in for a few weeks we want to hear feedback from our passengers on their journeys and these face-to-face sessions at our stations are a great opportunity to do that."

The 'Whistle Stop Tour' will call at Hertfordshire stations on the following dates:

  • Kings Langley - Wednesday 8 January 2020 - 5-7pm
  • Hemel Hempstead - Friday 17 January 2020 - 5-7pm
  • Berkhamsted - Tuesday 21 January 2020 - 5-7pm
  • Apsley - Thursday 30 January 2020 - 5-7pm

Further sessions at other stations across the London Northwestern Railway network will be arranged soon - for the latest dates visit www.lnr.uk/whistle-stop-tour
