CrossCountry are operating a revised timetable from 6 July to ensure that vital train services can keep running throughout the coronavirus outbreak. CrossCountry will operate many longer trains to provide up to twice the normal capacity.

As the numbers travelling increases more time needs to be allowed at stations for people to board and alight. To achieve this while also maintaining the national railway timetable, a small number of stations will see their CrossCountry services reduced or withdrawn to allow additional time at the more heavily used stations. Trains continue to operate throughout the day on most routes at a reduced frequency and in some cases with a revised calling pattern.You can view the timetable and a list of stations affected here.

Difficult to find detailed information on Cross Country's web site. I seemed to go round and round in circles

Always used to think more people got on and off at Winchester than Southampton Airport Parkway. Probably even more so now with the demise of Flybe.

Brockenhurst understandable with the current rearrangement of Isle of Wight ferries.
