Do you want the latest updates sent to your phone?

You can use twitter to deliver alerts to your smartphone every time we tweet to all of our followers. They look like this on Android and this on iPhone.

At South West Trains we recognise that social media is an extremely popular and effective way to help keep our customers informed about train service.
Our twitter channel (@SW_Trains) aims to provide accurate and timely information to assist followers to make informed decisions about their travel plans.
We will try to tweet every day about South West Trains activities, so that those who follow @SW_Trains can find out what is going on with our Network.

Tweets will currently include alerts about:
• Delays & Disruption to our Network
• New content published on our website
• Announcements / Press releases / News stories
• Marketing campaign messages
• Occasional live coverage of events
• Invitations for you to give us feedback
• Photos


If you follow us on Twitter we may follow you back. Being followed by us does not imply endorsement of any kind.


Working in partnership with our colleagues at National Rail Enquiries, we will endeavour to keep you updated 24/7. 
Twitter may occasionally be unavailable and we cannot accept responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime.

@Replies and Direct Messages

We welcome feedback, ideas and engagement from all our followers and endeavour to join the conversation where possible. However, due to time constraints and limitations of Twitter's format, we are not able to reply individually to all the messages we receive.
If you would like to make sure that your query will be answered, please contact our Customer Service Team.
