Our stations

December 2012 Timetable Change

The new Chiltern Railways timetable starts on 9th December 2012. Please check carefully to ensure you know when your train is due. A summary of the improvements to the timetable are detailed below.

Major changes to your services

This timetable features major changes to train times to deliver the improvements you told us were most important to you. Almost all trains will see some alterations as we make this transformation to our service so please make sure that you re-check train times if you regularly travel with us.

More seats in the peak

We have redesigned the timetable to ensure we make better use of our train fleet, having recently invested £8.5m in additional carriages. As a result, we can provide over 600 extra seats every weekday morning into London, enabling you to continue to travel in comfort on our services. We are able to provide over 5,000 additional seats at weekends, 2,650 extra seats towards London and 2,750 extra seats from the capital.

A regular timetable

By creating a more regular timetable, you’ll find that we have reduced inconsistent gaps between trains, especially in the evening peak towards High Wycombe. We hope you will find this new timetable easier to remember and more convenient.

Highlights of the new timetable

  • The off-peak service to Aylesbury via Amersham is completely retimed
  • Throughout most of the off peak, the through service to Aylesbury via High Wycombe is being reintroduced, providing better connections between Buckinghamshire stations
  • On average, trains are faster from Banbury, Princes Risborough and Beaconsfield in the morning peak
  • Non-stop services for passengers between Leamington Spa and London
