SouthEastern Train Timetables

Engineering Works, Train And Rail Delays In Kent

Welcome to our local train train times, cancellations and delay information. We link to a number of resources including 'live' information. Over time we have come to trust the National Railway Enquiry website most, it does however 'creak' when there is a major service interruption. The SouthEastern website is very reliable and if for any reason you fail to connect with either of these follow the links to the other resources or visit the main Kent travel page.

The aims of this page are to provide information related to SouthEastern train times, links to relevant resources and add some value through sharing user and researcher feedback. Your thoughts are central to the continual improvement of this page and our travel coverage overall. If you have any experience about the rail services in Kent and the resources we link to we'd like to hear from you. Our contact details are below.

"Dear Yourcounty, the rail service from Ashford has improved beyond belief in the last decade. If it is expensive it's because the private sector is playing catchup up after a period of massive under-investment, the legacy of state control. JD"


"Sirs, as a long standing commuter from Kent I have seen many changes to the train services into central London in the last twenty years. Standards have risen and the quality of the rolling stock has improved no end. But the prices remain much higher than our nearest international neighbours. I advise all commuters to undertake some simple research between the cost of an annual season ticket in the UK compared to France, Italy or Germany, the truth may surprise you!. A Smith"
