The new franchise operator has launched a timetable consultation

South Western Railway will be making some major changes to train services in the December 2018 timetable. The proposals have been developed with extensive input from customers and stakeholders; who asked for added peak capacity and faster services, earlier and later trains and more Sunday services. These are just some of the benefits South Western Railway say will be seen when the timetable begins on 9th December 2018. 

Hampshire Chamber of Commerce and South Western Railway really value your feedback – indeed South Western Railway have received and responded to plenty of queries since the announcement of the change of operator. We invite you to review the proposals for your area and provide any comments you may have via email to and to All of these will be reviewed and considered to help shape the new patterns of service and to form the final consultation document that will be put to the Department for Transport and Network Rail. Unfortunately we cannot respond individually to your queries, however please be assured all of them will be considered when we respond to the consultation and when South Western Railway put their final proposals together.

South Western Railway plan to undertake some face to face meetings at stations where you will be able to meet the team and ask questions. The list of venues and dates will be published as soon as they have been agreed.

This timetable consultation is a major step on South Western Railway’s journey towards the delivery of improvements to services that we know customers want to see.
