My lad and are trying to cover every line shown on the Tfl London Connection map
so far All the Undergound, All lines north of the river and everything on the South Western lines. Tramlink also ticked off.
however i can get routes over the rest of those needed EXCEPT the piece of line between St Johns and Ladywell.
The line leaves St Johns, then it diverges, the left branch going to Lewisham the right heading off to Hither Green. This however again diverges with the right branch going to Ladywell/Hayes

So are there any services that traverse this small ( on the map) curve direct in both directions between Ladywell and St Johns

Thanks

Any Hayes train not calling at Lewisham but calling at Ladywell, there's 2tph IIRC
--- old post above --- --- new post below ---
Speaking of which, it's also covered by the services that run over the Beckenham PSUL. I'm not sure if that's shown on the map (between New Beckenham and Beckenham Junction), but the services that do it are the 0015 Charing Cross-Tunbridge Wells (Tuesday Am-Sunday AM) and the 0449 / 0450 Tonbridge-Charing Cross during the week only.

Edit - just checked, that 0450 ex-Tonbridge goes via Lewisham.

To be absolutely precise, the only trains which call at Ladywell and then call at St Johns all go via Lewisham.

To get the curve direct from the main line to Ladywell, you need to get a service from Charing Cross to Hayes. This does not call at St Johns; the good news is that from August 30th these trains will call at London Bridge.

Just to clarify the question.

To meet our criteria, a passenger service does not have to stop at Ladywell and/or St Johns
So a Hayes-Charing Cross (if one exists, or any other limited stop service) covers the requirement
Hope that helps.
I assume there is a service otherwise the curve would not be shown on the map?

Charing Cross - Hayes and vice versa, half hourly during the day. Runs fast from Waterloo East to Ladywell. Uses that part on the map
