Chiltern Railway services disrupted for two weeks

The usually excellent Chiltern Railways services that we benefit from at Met Line stations are disrupted for the next two weeks, due to engineering work for their "Mainline" project.

Unfortunately the Mainline project doesn't deliver any benefits for the Chiltern service to Aylesbury via Amersham, but it will decrease journey times for customers on the Marylebone - Wycombe - Banbury - Birmingham line. All the pain, and no gain on the Met Line (as usual).

Anyway, the Chiltern service over the Met Line is (in summary):
  • Weekend 13th and 14th August
    Hourly shuttle between Aylesbury and Amersham and connecting service onto Met Line at Amersham.
  • Week Monday 15th to Friday 19th August
    Peak Hour trains between Aylesbury and Harrow on the Hill, connecting service onto Met Line at Harrow.
    Off Peak half-hourly shuttle between Aylesbury and Amersham and connecting service on the Met Line at Amersham.
  • Weekend 20th and 21st August
    Hourly shuttle between Aylesbury and Amersham and connecting service onto Met Line at Amersham or bus to Beaconsfield for connecting service to London Paddington
  • Week Monday 22nd to Friday 26th August
    Services are restored to Aylesbury via Amersham to London Marylebone but run to an ammended timetable.
    Met line Chiltern services may be busier than usual as Chiltern are running bus services to stations Aylesbury to Amersham from blockaded Mainline stations.
  • Saturday 27th August
    Services are running Aylesbury via Amersham to London Marylebone but run to an ammended timetable
    Met line Chiltern services may be busier than usual as Chiltern are running bus services to stations Aylesbury to Amersham from blockaded Mainline stations.
  • Sunday 28th August and Monday 29th August
    Chiltern engineering works complete but now no services between Amersham and London Marylebone due to TfL engineering work at Harrow on the Hill. Met Line also closed.
The best place to get more information on these works is the Chiltern Railways Changes to Train times page, as well as TfL for the Bank Holiday weekend works.

Note that not all online timetabling systems may be able to cope with the changes to the train times, and you're advised to use the PDF timetables on the Chiltern Railways website to check the exact details of train times.
