Changes to train times from 10 December 2017

The new Southern timetable starts on Sunday 10 December 2017. There are some changes Monday to Friday due to some services transferring to Thameslink and being operated by new Class 700 trains. There are no changes to services on Saturday or Sunday.

New trains this December and exciting new services in May

GTR is modernising your service with new trains, new infrastructure and new working practices to future-proof a railway that has seen passenger numbers on the Southern network into London double in just 12 years.

11 December 2017

On Monday 11 December, GTR will introduce brand new, cutting-edge 12-carriage Class 700 Thameslink trains onto 17 services on the Southern route between Littlehampton and London Bridge via the west coast and Hove (2 morning and two evening services), and between Horsham and London Bridge.  Many of these trains will be 50% longer than the trains they replace, with 12 carriages instead of eight. On the route between Horsham and London Bridge, the new, longer trains, will create almost 1,300 more standard class seats each weekday.

The trains are air-conditioned, bright, spacious, easy to board and alight, helping us to keep trains running on time, with two-by-two seating, wide aisles and an open walk-through design. They have the latest accessibility features and modern passenger information systems, which provide live status updates about London’s Tube, and even where on board passengers can find more space!

The trains are fixed in length to maximise the space on board for passengers and until the new timetable is introduced in May, this will cause some temporary timetable changes (see below) but when May arrives the service will be transformed.

Starting in May 2018

For the moment, the new trains simply replace others previously operated by Southern but from May 2018 they will form part of a new, expanded Thameslink network giving passengers more trains and new, faster, seamless journeys across the heart of London.

From May 2018, these trains will also operate from Brighton and East Grinstead, as well as along the coast from Littlehampton via Hove, and from Horsham. They will take passengers direct to London Bridge and then further, to London Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon (for fast frequent connections via Crossrail’s Elizabeth line to Heathrow), St Pancras International and stations beyond.

There will be no need to change on to the Tube to reach these destinations. Brighton trains will continue to Cambridge; Horsham services to Peterborough; East Grinstead and Littlehampton trains (peak only) will carry on to Bedford, via Luton Airport Parkway.

Brighton – London Bridge route

From May, there will be many more trains direct between Brighton and London Bridge. Today we have just five morning peak hour Southern and Thameslink services (2 Southern, 3 Thameslink) but in May there will be many more, culminating by December 2018 with 15 Thameslink trains direct to London Bridge arriving before 1000.  Of course, the Victoria service from Brighton will also be maintained.

The Thameslink services will all be 12-carriage trains giving passengers direct access to London Bridge, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras and beyond without having to take the Tube. Some will also connect with Cambridge – a brand new destination - from May 2018 on an hourly basis from May becoming half hourly from December.

Littlehampton, Worthing, Hove – London Bridge peak route

Today we have two trains in the morning peak from Littlehampton along the west coast via Hove to London Bridge; in December 2018 there will be three in each direction through London Bridge, London Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon (for Crossrail), St Pancras and on to Bedford via Luton Airport Parkway. They will be 5-14 minutes faster from Littlehampton to London Bridge.

The trains will run to and from Bedford, stopping at the following stations:

Littlehampton, Angmering, Goring-by-Sea, Durrington-on-Sea, West Worthing, Worthing, Lancing, Shoreham-by-Sea, Portslade, Hove, Preston Park, Haywards Heath, Three Bridges, East Croydon, London Bridge, London Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon, London St Pancras International, St Albans City, Harpenden, Luton, Leagrave, Bedford

Littlehampton-Victoria peak trains

Littlehampton currently has four peak services to Victoria and 3 to London Bridge. It will step up to seven to Victoria.

Horsham route

Today Horsham has two direct trains in the morning peak to London Bridge.  From May, the new Thameslink service will offer six trains in the peaks which start at Horsham and go via Redhill.

The Southern service (starting from Bognor Regis) will offer two trains in the peak – a total of eight.

There will be the same number of peak trains from London Bridge in the evening peaks.

Off peak, the current pattern from Horsham is two Southern trains per hour and from May these will become Thameslink services, all with 12 carriages all day.  Both will continue across London and continue to Peterborough, calling at these stations from Horsham:

Horsham, Littlehaven, Faygate (limited service), Ifield, Crawley, Three Bridges, Gatwick Airport, Redhill, Merstham, Coulsdon South, East Croydon, London Bridge, London Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon, London St Pancras International, Finsbury Park, Knebworth (am peak southbound only), Stevenage, Hitchin, Arlesey, Biggleswade, Sandy, St Neots, Huntingdon, Peterborough

The Horsham line to London Victoria frequency will be the same – 1 train per hour to Southampton Central, 1 train per hour to Portsmouth Harbour, two trains per hour to Bognor Regis.  The London Victoria via-Sutton service will also remain, with additional later evening trains.

The following trains will be amended:

  • 05:57 Littlehampton to London Bridge This train will now start from Horsham at 06:33 and will no longer call at Arundel, Pulborough, Billingshurst or Christs Hospital. The 06:33 from Horsham will now be operated by Thameslink
  • 06.37 Brighton to Haywards Heath will no longer operate. Due to the change being made late in the planning process this train is still shown as running in the printed timetables C1 and C2. The PDF timetables on this website are correct.
  • 07:53 London Bridge to Brighton and Tonbridge will no longer divide at Redhill or call at Nutfield, Godstone, Edenbridge, Penshurst, Leigh or Tonbridge. This train will now be operated by Thameslink
  • An additional 08.26 Redhill to Tonbridge service will operate to replace Tonbridge portion of the train above

The following trains transfer operator from Southern to Thameslink:

  • 05:52 Littlehampton to London Bridge
  • 06:29 Littlehampton to London Bridge
  • 08:02 London Bridge to Horsham
  • 08:28 London Bridge to Horsham
  • 09:29 Horsham to London Bridge

Frequently asked questions

Why have you removed the 0637 from Brighton to London Bridge?

We are bringing in more class 700 fixed-length trains to the network as part of the modernisation programme to bring much needed extra capacity to the railway in the South East.  As a result we are no longer able to join this service to the West Coastway service at Haywards Heath.  It will run as a 12 coach service from Littlehampton via Hove to London Bridge.  However, from May, we are planning to introduce many more trains direct from Brighton to London Bridge, reaching 15 by December.

Why have you removed the 0557 from Littlehampton via Pulborough 0614, Billingshurst 0621 and Christs Hospital 0628?

The Thameslink service will start from Horsham and this change is part of the wider roll out of class 700 Thameslink trains in readiness for the May 2018 timetable changes. This train was extended to Littlehampton in December 2013 from Horsham and was only introduced to solve a stabling problem and is used by very few passengers.

My train is changing from a Southern service to a Thameslink service. Is my ticket still valid?

If your ticket says 'Not Gatwick Express' or 'Any Permitted' then you can continue to travel as usual. If you have a 'Southern only' ticket, this will not be valid on the new Thameslink trains and you will either have to travel on an earlier or later Southern service or change your ticket for a ticket that says 'Not Gatwick Express' or 'Any Permitted'. Please speak to the staff in the ticket office on how to do this.
