Southern Rail cuts 341 trains per day

There's been all manner of problems with Southern Rail, including news of compensation for customers.

Well, things are about to get worse for those who use the services, because Southern Railway are going to cancel 341 trains a day in their revised timetable from next Monday.

The company say they're making these changes "to give passengers a better, more consistent service they can plan around".

There's a bit of us that thinks Southern Rail have thought: 'Hey! If there's literally less trains knocking about, then there's less trains to actually complain about! God, we're good at our jobs!'

Of course, if you're one of the people who rely on the services they're axing, you'll be furious.

So which ones are affected? Well, Southern Rail's West London Line between Milton Keynes and Clapham Junction will see all trains suspended until further notice.

On other lines, there's going to be replacement bus services, which will get everyone nice and furious.

There'll be changes to some direct connections to major London terminals, which means passengers are looking at longer journeys.

All in all, there's going to be around 15% of Southern Rail's services which will be cancelled until further notice. The train company say that this is around the same level as the number of trains which are currently being cancelled at the last minute.
