Emergency timetable due soon

West Anglia Great Northern Railways (WAGN) has e-mailed this site with the latest details of services between Brookmans Park, London and Welwyn Garden City.

The company says a half-hourly service is now operating from Brookmans Park and they will attempt to increase the frequency of trains if possible.

WAGN says Railtrack is still working to improve stretches of local track and as a result trains are running slower than usual.

An new emergency timetable is due to be published by the end of this week but will only be issued once WAGN is confident services can be maintained.

Once the company is satisfied it is able to run a regular service it will publish the new timetable on its website and later in hard copies.

In the meantime an interim timetable is on the WAGN site which shows that, during the rush hour, trains should be leaving Welwyn Garden City at 07, 22, 37 and 52 past the hour (to be sure to catch it allow about eight minutes for trains leaving Welwyn to reach Brookmans Park) and returning should leave Moorgate at 06, 21, 36 and 51 past the hour (trains usually take about eight minutes to reach Finsbury Park). Replacement buses will also be running until the end of the week.

The company has e-mailed this site to apologies to all commuters for the inconvenience and to thank them for their patience during what WAGN describes as a ‘very difficult time’.

The two websites to keep checking for rail news are WAGN's and Railtrack's sites.
