Thameslink Trains Are Going Through London Bridge Station

This article on Rail Technology Magazine is entitled Thameslink Test trains Travel Through New London Bridge Platform For First Time.

This is said.

 GTR’s first test passenger trains have made the trip through the new platform 5 at London Bridge following the completion of nearly three years of work.

The eight-carriage Class 700 RLU was the first passenger train to complete a journey over the new Bermondsey Dive-Under, as it came into London Bridge from New Cross Gate on New Year’s Day.

But they have increased their testing since.

This is a screen capture from Real Time Trains, showing Thameslink trains around 19:00 last night.


  1. Under the Platform column 4 and 5 are shown.
  2. Some trains appear to be stopping.

I’ve just checked this morning and it appears that Northbound trains are stopping in Platform 5 and Southbound services are going through Platform 4.
