Sittingbourne Station

Sittingbourne station is the next major station after Rainham station, as you go East on the Chatham Main line.

It doesn’t want for much more, as it has three long platforms, a step-free footbridge and most of the things a good station needs.

It is the station that connects the Sheerness Line to the Chatham Main Line.

So would it be a better idea to run the Thameslink service to Sittingbourne instead of Rainham?

The trains could even co-ordinate with the shuttle train to Sheerness.

It is a possibility, but Sittingbourne has five trains per hour (tph) going into London and they all pass over the bottleneck of the the level crossing at Rainham station.

I discuss this more in What Do You Do With A Problem Like Sheppey?
