Calendar and Timetable

From the 1st of December 2018

it is recommended to book a ticket before the day of departure

You can still buy tickets at Glenmark station up to the time of departure, but we can not guarantee you a seat. 

This is a change in a long standing policy to meet the expectations of our customers

Vouchers must now be redeemed to make a booking.

If you have an old printed Voucher please get in touch so we make arrangements for you.
