Christmas and New Year engineering works

We’ve planned essential engineering works over the Christmas and New Year bank holiday period.

Work will take place from Sunday 24 December 2023 to Tuesday 2 January 2024. The vital improvements and routine maintenance around Britain will give you a better and more reliable railway for the long term.

Most of the railway will stay open for business as usual. Please check before you travel by visiting National Rail Enquiries or your train operator’s website.
