Inconsistant service patterns.

Today there was one train an hour on the Bournemouth mainline but 4 per hour on the Portsmouth direct. A few weeks ago it was two trains per hour on both routes.
Why ?

  • HI,

    Each strike day had a different service pattern as we could only run as many trains as we had guards available. Guards can only work trains on routes that are trained to run on. This is why timetables for strike days became available just a few days before the strike, as our planning team first had to sort out exactly how many guards we would have available for each route.
