Planned engineering work

To maintain and improve the UK's rail infrastructure, Network Rail  has to carry out regular planned engineering work. The work is normally done at weekends, on bank holidays and after 10pm during the week, but it may also affect our services at other times. Please be aware, where replacement buses are in operation, journeys may take longer than normal.

In some cases, timetables will not be confirmed until less than the usual 12-weeks before travel. Wherever possible, we’ve highlighted those journeys yet to be confirmed in our journey planner. You can still book tickets in advance, please note there are only a limited number of tickets allocated per journey, and our Advance fares are available up until 6pm on the day before you travel. If you buy an Advance ticket for a train that is subsequently changed or cancelled, we will refund you. Check before you travel by using our  journey planner  or  download our Southeastern app  for the most up-to-date information.

Always check if unplanned engineering work will affect your journey .

Victoria re-signalling programme

On several days in December and January next year the line between Herne Hill, Brixton and London Victoria will be closed, along with Brixton station. During the closures major improvement work will be carried out by Network Rail engineers.

There is also an extended closure over the Christmas period, so please check before you travel. You can find more information on our Victoria re-signalling page .

Blackheath tunnel closure

From Saturday 1 June to Sunday 11 August inclusive,  the Blackheath tunnel between Blackheath and Charlton will close as Network Rail begins £10m of essential repairs to the 175-year-old Victorian-era structure . The tunnel is perfectly safe but needs major investment to protect its long-term integrity enabling it to be used reliably for the next 100 years.

We’re working to minimise the disruption by diverting services from Dartford to Cannon Street via Charlton and Lewisham to run via Greenwich, stopping additionally at Westcombe Park, Maze Hill, Greenwich, and Deptford.

I rode the $1 coastal train in Sri Lanka from Bentota to Colombo. There was a 2-hour delay, and I didn't have a seat on board, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

  • I recently went on a solo trip to Sri Lanka and rode its famed coastal rail.
  • The rail had stunning views of honey-colored beaches and the Indian Ocean.
  • I had to sit on my suitcase for the entire trip, but the locals I met along the way made it worth it.

Insider Today

Sri Lanka has been on my must-visit list for years. The teardrop-shaped island in South Asia is known for its stunning beaches, lush jungles, and foliage-covered mountains.

So right after I found out I had two vacation days that needed to be used up before the end of the month, I got online and booked a flight to the capital, Colombo , from Singapore, where I'm based. The flight is just under five hours.

After spending a night in Colombo, I made my way to Kollupitiya station and headed south to Bentota, a resort town. I spent two days there enjoying the honey-colored beach and watching surfers ride the waves at sunset. My plans for the trip to Sri Lanka involved little more than this, followed by a ride on the coastal train when it was time to head back north.

The journey from Bentota to Colombo by car was almost a two-hour-long journey. And by train, with its multiple stops along the way, it would take nearly an hour longer. But Sri Lanka's coastal train is famed as one of the most scenic in Asia, so I had to try it.

Take a look at what it's like to ride Sri Lanka's coastal train.

My journey started in Aluthgama, a small seaside town that's 40 miles south of Colombo.

check my railway journey

Aluthgama's train station is located right across the bridge that connects the town with Bentota. While Bentota does have its own station, many people choose to come to the one in Aluthgama as it's near several resorts and hostels.

Sri Lanka's railway extends to most parts of the country, and one of its most famous is the coastal rail, which has views of its southern coast and the Indian Ocean. In total, the rail stretches almost 970 miles. Other routes take as long as eight to 10 hours and pass by Sri Lanka's picturesque tea plantations and sprawling rice fields.

I met a local tuk-tuk driver, Suresh, who offered to take me to Aluthgama station, around 15 minutes from Bentota. Suresh, with his thick, curly hair and sporty sunglasses, spotted me walking along a busy street, looking for a restaurant . He ended up being my guide for a few hours.

Getting around by tuk-tuk — a motorized rickshaw popular in Sri Lanka and other Asian countries like Thailand and Cambodia — was the best form of transportation for a budget traveler like me, as Suresh charged me just 200 Sri Lanka rupees or 65 cents for a ride.

Like many rail stations in Sri Lanka, the one in Aluthgama was bare and resembled a shed.

check my railway journey

It was dry season in Sri Lanka, so the temperature hovered at 95 degrees Fahrenheit that day. The sun was beating down on the dusty, sandy streets. It was so hot that several locals took shelter from the sweltering sun at the foot of the station.

The station was covered in a turmeric shade of yellow, with brightly-colored portraits of locals painted on the walls of the stairs that led to the ticket office. The train tracks, which sliced through the thick jungle and towering palm trees, were built right next to a soccer field and public library.

Compared to other trains I have taken in Asia — including a 13-hour train through Thailand and a two-hour long trip on the Laos-China rail — the station felt dated. Yet I appreciated the vintage charm this helped to provide.

As I was traveling without a set schedule, I bought a ticket at the station itself.

check my railway journey

At the time, I didn't realize passengers could purchase a ticket in advance. But many locals appeared to buy their tickets right before the train arrived. I arrived at the station at 3 p.m. and learned the counter only opened 30 minutes later. I ended up waiting for an hour.

First, I met Manvik, a local business owner, at the station. Manvik was in his 40s, bald, and dressed in a short-sleeved shirt paired with slacks. As a solo traveler, I'm often wary of overly friendly people. But I quickly warmed up to Manvik, who invited me to his seafood restaurant the next time I visited Sri Lanka.

While waiting for the counter to open, I got into a conversation with Kalana, a student who was on his way home. He told me he majored in management at a college in Galle, a city on the southwestern tip of Sri Lanka. Kalana, with his boyish smile and dark hair, said he made the commute every day and spotted a handful of tourists on it daily.

I eventually made a beeline for the counter and snagged a second-class ticket to Colombo Fort for 300 rupees, or less than a dollar. In hindsight, this was the best — and cheapest — way to travel across the country, as a first-class train reservation online for the same route cost 900 rupees, and hailing a car on the local app costs 10 times as much.

When I got on the first car of the train, it was already chock full of passengers.

check my railway journey

The majority of the passengers appeared to be locals, but there were a handful of tourists traveling to Colombo too. The train car was fitted with two rows of black leather seats on each side and a fairly spacious aisle. It was bare-bones, with overhead lights and one tiny fan doing little to quell the heat inside the train.

Right before the train left, several vendors were busy peddling paruppu vadai, a popular local snack that's deep-fried and prepared with spices like red and green chilies, fennel, and cumin. The fatty, oily aroma wafted in the air through the crowded car. Other vendors were selling sodas and sliced tropical fruits like guava and mango.

I met a family of three from Barcelona who had been traveling in Sri Lanka for three weeks. They said that they got around the country only by train and that Colombo was their last stop. We all posted up at the narrow entrance of the car, cramped by the door, tightly holding our belongings.

The train ended up leaving at around 4.50 p.m., which meant I had been waiting for almost two hours. But I was just thankful it wasn't canceled, like the trains in Europe I traveled on in February.

I spent most of the ride sitting on my suitcase.

check my railway journey

I travel light whenever I'm in Asia, so I flew to Sri Lanka with just a backpack and a 15-pound suitcase. Packing light worked in my favor as it made the trip more comfortable.

I couldn't get a seat, so I simply sat on my suitcase, grabbed whatever I could, and held on. It was a bumpy ride, with one woman even falling on me, almost thrusting me and my bags toward the open door. Nonetheless, I found being by the door the best seat on the train, as the breeze from the sea felt refreshing.

The views of the coast were incredible.

check my railway journey

I was right at the mouth of the door and had a front-row view of the coast and the sea. The rumbling of the train and the swooshing of the powerful waves was the perfect soundtrack to the scenic ride.

It was dusk, and the sun's bright orange hue lit up the sparkling, metallic blue waters. The train also passed several villages where people lived in tin-roofed homes on the beach. Nearing Colombo, the train was so close to the water that I could see waves crashing onto the sand.

The ride went by much faster than I had anticipated. In no time, I reached Colombo Fort.

check my railway journey

The train arrived earlier than scheduled, at around 6.45 p.m. Colombo Fort is one of the largest rail stations in Sri Lanka. Built in 1908, over 200,000 passengers travel through the station every day. Several screens displayed the scheduled routes — something that I hadn't seen in the dozen other train stations I passed along the way.

It was bustling, with hundred of passengers getting on and off the trains and staff loading them with several carts of food. Still, it felt calm and far from the rush and chaos I had experienced in Bangkok's main station a few years back.

I've traveled on trains in 8 countries so far, and the coastal rail in Sri Lanka has got to be my favorite.

check my railway journey

While my trip to Sri Lanka was last-minute, it turned out to be a memorable one. Not only were the views from the rail spectacular, but the locals were incredibly helpful and welcoming too. And while I've had challenges traveling solo to countries for the first time in the past, in Sri Lanka, it felt easy. It made traveling feel adventurous but safe at the same time.

I'm already planning my next trip to Sri Lanka at the end of the year, and I can't wait to go on one from Kandy to Ella , which passes through the country's central highlands. I'd be happy to take that same ride again as well.

Rail and Tube strikes in April and May 2024: Full list of dates and lines affected as Underground and train drivers walk out

One of the Tube strike days also coincides with a planned rail strike. Here's everything you need to know.

Monday 25 March 2024 09:49, UK

check my railway journey

Tube services will be disrupted in April and May as drivers stage two 24-hour strikes.

Drivers who are members of ASLEF, the train drivers' union which represents 96% of train drivers in Britain, will walk out from their roles on the London Underground over pay and conditions.

They will strike on:

Monday 8 April

Saturday 4 May

Rail strikes also taking place

Drivers at 16 rail companies are also going to stage a fresh wave of strikes, plus a six-day overtime ban, their union ASLEF announced.

Both strikes are part of a long-running dispute.

The rail strikes will take place on:

Friday 5 April

Strikes will affect Avanti West Coast, East Midlands Railway, West Midlands Trains, and CrossCountry.

Saturday 6 April

Strikes will affect Chiltern, GWR, LNER, Northern, and TransPennine Trains.

Strikes will affect Greater Anglia, c2c, GTR Great Northern Thameslink, Southeastern, Southern/Gatwick Express, South Western Railway main line and depot drivers, and SWR Island Line.

Members will also refuse to work their rest days from Thursday 4 to Saturday 6 April and from Monday 8 to Tuesday 9 April .

Why are the strikes happening?

Finn Brennan, ASLEF's full-time organiser on the London Underground, said in a statement: "ASLEF Tube train drivers will strike in April and May in a long-running dispute over London Underground's failure to give assurances that changes to our members' terms and conditions will not be imposed without agreement and that all existing agreements will be honoured.

"Despite a previous commitment to withdraw plans for massive changes to drivers' working conditions, London Underground management has established a full-time team of managers preparing to impose their plans.

"They want drivers to work longer shifts, spending up to 25% more time in the cab, and to remove all current working agreements in the name of 'flexibility and efficiency'.

"Everyone knows what these management buzz words really mean. It's about getting people to work harder and longer for less.

"Management has also failed to deliver on commitments given to us on making drivers' cabs secure, on police numbers on Night Tube and on training.

"Our members simply don't believe what LU management tells them anymore. ASLEF are, as always, ready to talk, but we want to see real action from management - not easily broken promises."

Transport for London (TfL) said in a statement: "We have been in long-term discussions with our trade union colleagues on how to modernise procedures and processes on London Underground to improve the experience both for staff and customers.

"We have no plans to impose these changes and have committed to no one losing their job as part of these changes, and we have engaged with our unions to demonstrate that no change will be made that compromises our steadfast commitment to safety on the Tube network.

"We urge ASLEF to continue discussions with us so that disruption for Londoners can be averted."

Mick Whelan, ASLEF general secretary, added on the rail strikes: "Last month, when we announced renewed mandates for industrial action, because under the Tories' draconian anti-union laws we have to ballot our members every six months, we called on the train companies, and the government, to come to the table for meaningful talks to negotiate a new pay deal for train drivers who have not had an increase in salary since 2019.

"Our members voted overwhelmingly - yet again - for strike action."

A Rail Delivery Group spokesperson said: "Nobody wins when industrial action impacts people's lives and livelihoods, and we will work hard to minimise any disruption to our passengers.

"We want to resolve this dispute, but the ASLEF leadership need to recognise that hard-pressed taxpayers are continuing to contribute an extra £54m a week just to keep services running post-COVID.

"We continue to seek an agreement with the ASLEF leadership and remain open to talks to find a solution to this dispute."

Backpacker dies after falling from moving train on journey to ‘Death Island’

Boyfriend of British backpacker, 24, dies after plunging from a moving train while the pair were on overnight journey to Thailand's 'Death Island' Viral Press

A backpacker was killed after falling from a moving train on Thailand’s notorious ‘Death Island’.

Ryan Joseph Ralph, 24, boarded the overnight train with British girlfriend Shona Morgan, 22, in Bangkok to reach the notorious Koh Tao island on Wednesday.

A couple of hours into the journey, the Canadian tourist left Shona sleeping while he went for a cigarette at the end of the carriage.

He is believed to have been injured in a fall from the train before being pulled briefly along the tracks.

Tragically, he was found dead the next day under a newly built platform at the Chet Samian Railway Station in Ratchaburi province.

Police believe Ryan fell and was struck by part of the concrete platform while the train was still moving, before dragging himself underneath to escape the wheels but he later passed out and died from blood loss.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Rathnont Kasemchaisit of the Photharam Police said: ‘The dead man was shirtless, wearing brown shorts and a necklace, and lying on his back with severe injuries on both of his legs.

‘He had in his pocket a wallet containing various documents and Thai banknotes.

‘From the preliminary investigation, there were no traces of assault. We believe he had been dead for at least five hours.

A Canadian backpacker has been found dead after falling from a moving train during a birthday trip with his girlfriend to Thailand's notorious 'Death Island'.??? Ryan Joseph Ralph, 24, boarded the overnight locomotive with Shona Morgan, 22, (PICTURED TOGETHER A FEW DAYS BEFORE DEATH) from Northern Ireland from Bangkok to reach the notorious Koh Tao island in the south on March 20. ???However, a couple of hours into the journey, he left Shona sleeping while he went for a cigarette at the end of the carriage, where many had no doors or barriers. ???The tourist is believed to have been injured in a fall from the train before being pulled briefly along the tracks. ???Tragically, he was found dead the next day, March 21, under a newly built platform at the Chet Samian Railway Station in Ratchaburi province.??????PACKAGE: Video, pictures, text

‘The Canadian did not die instantly. He managed to crawl under the platform, but died of blood loss later on.’

Ryan’s girlfriend Shona said she became worried when she woke up around an hour after he left and he was not on the train and could not be contacted.

She disembarked from the train and notified officers at the nearest police station at around 10:30 pm local time.

Authorities used the GPS tracker on Ryan’s phone to launch a search, scouring the 30km stretch of tracks from the Khlong Bang Tan Railway Station to the Ban Kluai Railway Station. However, they failed to locate him.

As the search resumed the following morning, Photharam Police Station officers received a report that the body of a dead foreigner had been found under the platform of the Chet Samian Railway Station.

A Canadian backpacker has been found dead after falling from a moving train during a birthday trip with his girlfriend to Thailand's notorious 'Death Island'.??? Ryan Joseph Ralph, 24, (PICTURED) boarded the overnight locomotive with Shona Morgan, 22, from Northern Ireland from Bangkok to reach the notorious Koh Tao island in the south on March 20. ???However, a couple of hours into the journey, he left Shona sleeping while he went for a cigarette at the end of the carriage, where many had no doors or barriers. ???The tourist is believed to have been injured in a fall from the train before being pulled briefly along the tracks. ???Tragically, he was found dead the next day, March 21, under a newly built platform at the Chet Samian Railway Station in Ratchaburi province.??????PACKAGE: Video, pictures, text

Police arrived at the scene, where they found dried blood on the side of the platform and on gravel.

In the gap under the platform, Ryan was discovered splayed out on the dirt.

A pair of headphones, a smartphone, and sandals believed to belong to the deceased were also found nearby.

Cambodian rail worker Makala, 23, the man who discovered the body, said he often slept under the platform during his breaks. He added he was shocked and ran to inform his boss when he found the Canadian’s corpse that day.

He said: ‘The person was lying down, so I thought he was sleeping at first. When I took a closer look, he was not breathing. I was scared so I rushed to inform my supervisor about it.’

Authorities said that Ryan may have been struck on the leg by the platform, which had insufficient lighting and was only around 50 cm away from the train tracks.

Shona, 23, said he had been in Thailand since February 17, and she flew into the country shortly after to celebrate his birthday with him.

Ryan’s body was taken to the Forensic Institute for a post-mortem examination.

Police said they had given the details to the Canadian Embassy to inform his relatives of his death.

Thailand’s ageing trains have become notorious for their poor safety standards.
