I understand that most of the Beckenham Junction to London Bridge services are operated by 455s but some 377s are also seen on that route. I've been trying to see which services are scheduled to be formed of a 377.

I've had a look at the timetable which can be found here. Am I right in guessing that the services marked with the symbol "Only folded cycles can be carried on trains marked with this symbol" are 377 operated or is it the opposite?

Folded cycles just tells you it's a peak time service in the peak flow direction. :(
You've had to pick a timetable where services are different services are going to/from/both London terminals directions so it looks confusing, but I don't think rolling stock has anything to do with it.

I have never yet seen a 377 down there, but you might be lucky at peak times(?).

Oh well it seems I've got the wrong idea then! :roll: ;)

I've seen videos about of 377s on that route (although I can only find the one at the moment at Birkbeck here).

Remember a while back a pair of 455's used to run on the branch from about 4pm on a Saturday. Does this still happen?

According to the diagrams over on the UKModernEMU group which I've just come across the 09:23 and 17:48 BKJ-LBG services are formed of two 455s.

EDIT: I didn't read Saturday, so the above info is only valid Mon-Fri. :roll:
