Southeastern have introduced a timetable to help drivers cope with leaves on the train track.

The autumn leaf fall timetable runs until December 7 and alterations have been made to 10 of their lines, which run through Bexley, Bromley and north Kent.

The company says the changes factor in the need for drivers to adjust the way they drive trains, such as accelerating and braking more slowly, and routes with more trees have been called “particularly vulnerable.”

A spokesperson said: “Southeastern operates on the most congested and complex network in the whole of the UK. Any train delay can have a knock-on effect for the whole network.

“Our staff, together with Network Rail, will do their best to get the service back on track as quickly as possible, and we will also inform you of any alternative routes that you can use.”
