The Search Tool for UK Rail Information

Data Sources - Contains public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence v3.0 including the following;

Data Quality - Timetable information from our suppliers is typically accurate to within a few days.
We are not responsible for errors and omissions in such, but would consider it a favour if you could notify us of such so that we can investigate further.

When timetable changes have been published in advance information for a later date can be viewed using 'Day of Travel' feature under 'Departures'.
We do not normally receive details of temporary timetables (e.g. for major road closures). When we are aware of such we may provide a warning notice.
On bank / public holidays we try to provide a notice warning of this. Note: we cover the whole of the UK so the holiday may not apply in your location!
