London Northwestern Railway: Passengers urged to check journeys ahead of timetable change

London Northwestern Railway is urging passengers to check their journeys ahead of a timetable change coming into effect later this month.

From Sunday 11 December departure times and frequencies on some routes will change as part of a national twice-yearly timetable change.

Jonny Wiseman, LNR customer experience director, said: “These changes have been carefully planned to provide a more reliable, robust timetable for our customers.

“On some routes the new timetable will mean departure times have changed significantly so I am urging our customers to check their journeys carefully to avoid being left behind.”

Among the changes are:

  • The introduction of a new half-hourly service between Birmingham New Street-Northampton-London Euston
  • A new timetable with changes to calling patterns between Northampton-Milton Keynes-London Euston
  • Significant retiming on routes including Birmingham New Street-Liverpool Lime Street and Birmingham-Crewe (via Stoke)
  • The introduction of an hourly service pattern on the Abbey Line between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey

Full details of the timetable changes are available at

Passengers are also being reminded that industrial action is expected to disrupt services in the first week following the timetable change (w/c Dec 12). See for details.
