The rail firm has announced its autumn timetable

A new timetable to prepare for falling leaves could mean trains will run through up to six stations without stopping all day.

The autumn timetable, brought in by Southeastern to prepare for any disruption caused by leaves on the line, has been published for all six of the rail firm’s lines heading in and out of London.

On the Hayes line, the Monday to Friday service between London and Hayes could pass through New Beckenham, Clock House and Eden Park without stopping, if the timetable is deployed.

Passengers on the Bexleyheath line will not be able to get off at Welling, Falconwood and Kidbrooke.

A Southeastern spokesman said: “During the autumn period, when the weather is particularly bad, it is necessary to arrange for trains to omit certain stops on some routes, during non peak times. This is to ensure that trains and crews are then in the right place to run reliable evening peak time services.

“We encourage all passengers to check timetable information before making their journeys. Along with Network Rail, our priority is to ensure our passengers can travel safely during these months.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
