Thameslink Begins Testing At Redeveloped London Bridge

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article in Rail Magazine.

This is said.

Direct trains from Blackfriars to London Bridge stopped in January 2015, but will resume this month once further testing and driver training has been completed. A full service introduction is planned for May.

That sounds like good news to me!

  1. Finally. Just annoyed they couldn’t start them in January given all the infrastructure is now in place!

  2. A new line was finished over Christmas and I suspect, they need to test it and train the staff!

    I suspect that the Brighton Bedford services will use the route as soon as they can, as it will just be swapping London Bridge for Elephant & Castle and it will mean faster journeys, which will help Thameslink recover the service, if say a train fails.
