Live train information

2 General Updates
On Mondays to Friday, the following two trains may need to wait for about 20 minutes at Bentley before proceeding to Alton:

08:53 Waterloo - Alton
(retimed to arrived Alton at 10:28)

19:53 Waterloo - Alton
(retimed to arrived Alton at 21:29)

This is to allow a special track cleaning train to run on the Alton line, which helps to prevent problems caused by leaves on the line. Should the cleaning train not be required to run, the above trains will leave Bentley at the advertised time with an earlier arrival at Alton.

This will continue during Autumn until the 13th December.

Why is this happening during the evening peak, rather than earlier in the day? 

The track cleaning train which runs on the Alton line also covers other areas of our network. Starting from it's home location at Effingham the train visits Guildford and Reigate, before covering both the Blackwater route to Reading and Camberley route to Virginia Water. Between covering these routes the train visits the Alton branch, with the entire circuit taking approximately 8 hours. While every effort has been made to avoid delaying passenger services, some alterations are unavoidable and the current route and timings have been found to cause the least amount of inconvenience for passengers. 

Why can this work not be done overnight? 

In previous years we have carried out this work overnight, however it has been found that due to both planned and unplanned engineering work taking place at the same time it has been difficult to guarantee that the lines which are affected most by leaf fall were treated. This has led to delays and inconvenience for passengers on the following days as trains experienced problems and needed to be altered as a result. 

After careful consideration, and while regretting the delays caused to the two affected services which have been retimed for the Autumn, we believe that being able to guarantee properly treated tracks will provide the maximum benefit to the most number of passengers.
