Due to strike action by Network Rail staff, there is NO service on trains from Forest Hill and HOP on both days.

London Overground will operate a limited service on both days between New Cross/NXG to Dalston. On Tuesday, this will finish at 5pm.

Southeastern will operate services on the Hayes line from 9am until 7pm on Monday and 9am to 5pm on Tuesday to and from Cannon Street. There are also other services from Lewisham.

Other alternatives include the 176 and 185 bus into town from FH and the 171, 172 from Brockley Rise, the DLR will operate as normal from Lewisham and tube services if you can get to Brixton, Oval, Vauxhall etc.

Both unions have called off the strikes now, so normal services on the days affected.

rbmartin, you must have the magic touch! Two and a half hours after posting that there was a train strike, it was called off!

Can you please put up similar postings about the state of the economy, the health service and our schools, so that by the end of the day, they'll all be fixed too?! Thumbsup Thanks!
