I've been asked if I can add engineering works for Southeastern and Thameslink, so I'll add the Hayes line from Catford Bridge, Lower Sydenham and Ladywell and Thameslink from Crofton Park/Catford which SE23 residents also use.

Saturday 26th November:

Southeastern: No service due to industrial action.

Thameslink: Normal Saturday service.

Sunday 27th November:

Southeastern: Normal service on the Hayes line, however there are no trains to Dartford via Bexleyheath from Lewisham. Replacement buses are in operation.

Thameslink: Normal service.

Southeastern and Thameslink will also have changes to their timetable from December 11th, these include:

All trains on the Hayes line will operate to Charing Cross. 2tph will operate via Lewisham and the other 2tph will continue to be fast from Ladywell to London Bridge. On Sundays, all trains operate via Lewisham.

There are some peak services to Victoria introduced from Crofton Park operated by Southeastern which call at Denmark Hill only.

Morning peak services are at 0741, 0811, 0840 and 0910. Evening Peak services from Victoria are at 1712 and 1812 calling at Denmark Hill.

Regarding Boxing Day. Requests for drivers to put their names down to work Boxing Day have gone out, so there will be a London Overground service on Boxing Day. The level of which will be determined on the amount of volunteers and announced by TfL in the near future.

RealTrainTimes has initially published an every 15 minutes service to West Croydon on Boxing Day, but as Dave mentions, it's not confirmed.

Hi, not sure if Southern has a normal service on Sunday. Trainline for St Pancras to Honor Oak is not showing any southern rail options from London Bridge to Honor Oak options (then again, no Southern service on a Sunday is basically normal).

You're right, the Victoria/London Bridge trains have been removed from RealTrainTimes as well for Sunday.

The Victoria services are running to Crystal Palace only, yet nothing on Southern's Engineering Works page.

It appears the Elizabeth Line will operate an overnight service on New Year's Eve to Abbey Wood, so the Whitechapel option is there as well.

However, no Boxing Day service it seems.

It seems crazy what a big shopping day Boxing day is with stores starting their sales but the elizabeth line isn't running.

An extra RMT strike has been pencilled in for Christmas Eve at 6pm, this will ultimately lead to a slightly earlier finish on that Saturday afternoon.

Do we know yet whether the strike action next Friday and Saturday will impact the Overground and Southern services from Forest Hill?

The RMT strikes usually mean no service on Southern with London Overground operating from around 8am-6pm.
