Working for You This Christmas

While many of you at home with your friends and families this Christmas, remember there will be thousands of railway staff hard at work on maintenance and upgrades all over the country.


  1. I remember when you used to be able to travel by train, Christmas or New Years day!!! Can you still or is the network closed?

  2. A lot of the network is closed to trains over Christmas Day and Boxing Day - compared with how things used to be, many lines are worked so intensively that there's very little time to get major works done! New Years Day always has a full service but when you see the first train pass at 0539hrs, empty, you do wonder why!

    On the plus side, I do get Christmas Day and Boxing Day off each year!

  3. Thanks James!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
