To expand: national rail enquiries shows 3 bus legs: Buxted - Crowborough - Oxted - Purley.Looks like there's some sort of engineering work that has been going on for months. Looks like I'll need to take 3 replacement buses to Purley then the train. Surely there's a better way?
The NRE Engineering page shows 2 legs only - you could tweet Southern/Govia?To expand: national rail enquiries shows 3 bus legs: Buxted - Crowborough - Oxted - Purley.
Occasionally buses are loaded into the timetable as separate legs even though they run through - I think it's possible that Crowborough - Purley could actually be a through bus. Presumably they're expecting very low passenger numbers south of Crowborough?
Depends how you define longish but 0.2 mile or about 4 mins. Get off opposite Lewes Court and walk down the hill to the station.1. Get a lift or walk down to Coopers Green. Get a number 29 bus to Lewes (longish walk from the bus to the station) and then a direct train to East Croydon.
