We recognise performance on the railway has been unsatisfactory, and passengers have not always received the level of service they expected. While performance has improved recently, the new Transport Secretary understands passengers need the certainty of reliable journeys, and is determined to work with industry to improve performance.

We are unable to provide the data requested, as it is owned by Network Rail. We advise you contact them directly for further information or refer to their websites.
