Passenger groups have reacted angrily to news that hundreds of train timetables are likely to be published later than usual. Rail users are normally told about new timetables 12 weeks in advance, enabling them to book cheap tickets.

The change will happen from this Sunday, 12 weeks ahead of the new Spring timetable, and is likely to affect travellers for at least six months.
New train timetables could be published just four weeks before journeys are due to happen
