We have put together everything you need to know about the Thameslink timetable as six days of strike action take place this week.

From Monday, July 3 until Saturday, July 8 rail workers at ASLEF, the drivers’ union, have called a ban on non-contractual overtime at 16 train companies across the UK, including Thameslink.

Thameslink has said it will be running an amended timetable, with fewer services running every hour during the days of the strike.

Trains are expected to be busier than usual, particularly during peak hours, with some passengers being required to queue.

Here’s everything you need to know if you’re planning on travelling with Thameslink this week:

July 3 until July 7

From today (July 4) until Friday (July 7) there will be a limited number of services running every hour, with some services being extended or limited to peak times.

For passengers travelling between Sutton and St Albans via Mitcham, there will be two trains running per hour. There will be two trains every hour running between London Blackfriars and Sutton via Wimbledon.

There will be one train running every hour between Luton and Rainham, and one train running every hour during peak hours between Luton and Kentish Town and Orpington.

Two trains will be running every hour between London Blackfriars and Sevenoaks, with one train every hour being extended to and from Welwyn Garden City during peak hours.

One train will be running between London Bridge and Three Bridges via Redhill every hour.

Saturday, July 8

On Saturday (July 8) there will be a number of services in and out of London running on a limited service, with between one and two trains running every hour.

There will be two trains running every hour between Luton and Sutton via Mitcham, and Sutton and Luton via Wimbledon.

One train will run every hour between Gravesend and Rainham, and one train will be running every hour between Blackfriars and Sevenoaks.

Passengers travelling to the upcoming Wireless Festival in Finsbury Park on Saturday are being advised that trains will be “extremely busy” with passengers needing to queue.

Passengers travelling to the festival by Thameslink trains are being advised to plan ahead and to leave with enough time to travel to the event.

Customers are being advised to check before they travel and to plan ahead if travelling during the days of industrial action.

Network Operations Director at Govia Thameslink Railway, Chris Fowler, said: “We're really sorry for the disruption this industrial action by ASLEF will cause our customers. Regrettably, we’ll be running an amended timetable with fewer trains from Monday to Saturday, 3-8 July.

“By reducing service levels, we’ll have fewer short-notice, on-the-day alterations, which provides greater certainty for customers planning their journeys.

“Customers heading to the Wireless Festival at Finsbury Park will face long waits and extremely busy trains on a very limited service so they should find other ways to travel if possible.

“Overall, I strongly advise people to plan ahead, allow extra time and check trains before setting out for the station.”
