This is a train.

The London to Southend Railway has announced more details of planned engineering works over the Christmas and New Year period of 2015 – 2016.

Dec 24th – Dec 26th: Southend Victoria – Prittlewell CLOSED

The line will be closed for polishing between Southend Victoria and Prittlewell, which means that all services will be temporarily diverted through The Range and Matalan before passengers can alight and depart at a temporary station inside of The Railway public house.

Dec 27th – Dec 31st: Southend Airport – Rochford CLOSED

The line will be closed for essential sleeper sniffing work between Southend Airport and Rochford. As a result of this disruption, passengers on Easyjet and Flybe services into London Southend Airport are requested to jump out of the plane around 15 seconds before landing in order to use connecting rail services. In the event that the flight path takes your flight over Leigh On Sea instead, a temporary mattress will be installed on the roof of Sports Direct (an executive mattress will be in place on top of Harvey’s).
