I'm not moaning, because I benefit from 2 of those 4tph, but this criss-crossing really does seem to be contrary to the main aim of building a whacking great flyover there in the first place.

You must get a real feeling of deja vu with your helpful posts. If only people would read the thread...

Here's a similar reply from page 3: http://www.railforums.co.uk/showpost...2&postcount=34

Thanks. It's sometimes hard to read and hold the entire content of a 30 page thread in one's mind when only a casual level railfan.

For trains coming from Greenwich/New Cross to Thameslink, the Southwark Reversible dive under only avoids conflicts with Down services from Thameslink towards Sussex.

Platform lines at New Cross to Thameslink can only be done in parallel with something from Thameslink to Greenwich or back to the platform lines at New Cross, not from Thameslink directly to the Fast Lines.

This is correct, I was specifically replying to ijmad regarding the down Thameslink services crossing Up Cannon Street services and the options available in that case.

Heard some people complaining that journey times were up to 30% slower into London for stations between St Albans and Bedford but looking at the proposed timetable and comparing it to the old one I cannot see this. It still seems to take 22 mins from STA to STP and approx an hour from Bedford.
