Through The Medway Towns

If you look at the services through the Medway Towns, you will have the following services in 2018.

  • 2 trains per hour (tph) Highspeed services between St. Pancras and Faversham.
  • 2 tph Thameslink services between Luton and Rainham.
  • 3 tph services between Victoria and the Kent Coast.
  • 2 tph services between Charing Cross and Gillingham

Note.

  • It is a service with frequencies of between five and seven tph in both directions.
  • The smallest trains serving the route are six-car Class 395 trains, with most at least eight-cars.
  • The service reaches from Abbey Wood, Dartford, Greenhithe and Swanley  in the West. to Sittingbourne, Faversham and the Kent Coast in the East.
  • The fare supplement for Highspeed services is only paid West of Gravesend, so from that station to the East, normal fares are paid and the trains just contribute seats to the service.

Conclusion

It is a turn-up-and-go metro par excellence  run with quality trains.

The possibilities for improvement  are good too!
