Train service subject to New Year cancellations

Train service subject to New Year cancellations

By Staff Writer - December 31, 2016

sncfmcSince Christmas weekend, train travellers have experienced random last minute cancellations of scheduled rail service, even as recently as yesterday. It’s no surprise then that French train operator SNCF has warned of cancellations and delays over the New Year weekend. The latest disruption to services is not due to strike action, the most frequent cause, but because of “operational problems”, SNCF said.

The interruption is due to start on Friday, December 30, and last through Monday, January 2. At such times, it’s the later services in the day, particularly the last scheduled trains, that are most likely to be cancelled, often without warning. 

The last scheduled train service from Monaco to Nice Ville on December 31 is at 11:42 pm, arriving at 00:06 am on Sunday, January 1.
