Details of weekend engineering works on London Underground are posted 
to the group as soon as I receive them from London Transport. This 
information is also available on the Ceefax/Teletext Travel Information 
Pages and from a mailing list, details of which are on the LT website.  

Current train running information for South East England can be found 
on Ceefax (the BBC teletext service) page 433. Current LT travel 
information can be found on Ceefax page 436 or Teletext on 3 (Carlton 
Area) page 194.   

Details of Rail Weekend Engineering works can be found on Ceefax on 
BBC2 page 491.   

For the latest travel information for the London area ring LT 
Travelcheck on 020 7222 1234. For train running information, ring 
anyone *except* National Enquiries ;) Most of the Train Operating 
Companies have their own enquiry line, which should be given in the 
timetable booklet, and you should ring this before you even think about 
ringing NRES as anyone in uk.railway will confirm.  In the unlikely 
event of you wishing to ring NRES, the number is 0845 748 4950.  

If you want to know the fare(s) and routeing for any journey involving 
more than one change of train (and even that's pushing it at times for 
NRES <g>) post your query in uk.railway and you'll get the right answer 
quicker. If you must phone NRES then ring at *least* three times, 
preferably more, and take the average of the fares. In the unlikely 
event that all three operators agree, you should have the right 
information. ;)  Alternatively, use my web travel information request 
form at <http://www.salterg.demon.co.uk/ukrail/railinfo.html>.
