    I was having a little look around RealTimeTrains, when I stumbled upon this service, which seems to run every day this Monday to Friday. Is there a reason for this?

    Using RTT to check what forms it is the best idea: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/W31051/2015/08/24/advanced

    ...so It is formed from an ECS arrival from Cannon St 5U93, having taken the long way round via Blackfriars carriage sidings and Elephant and Castle, with a 1 minute dwell at Denmark Hill, so the problem must be a short term issue with capacity in the Cannon St or London Bridge area:

    Been beaten to it.

    There is a longstanding tradition of a summer holiday extra on this route, historically using stock that would have been running ECS to Ramsgate anyway (can't access WTT just now to check, I'm going back a generation). Interesting that there are two workings this year from the Catford Loop, don't recall that before.
