Do any 444 diagrams stop at Surbiton?

    Pretty much as the title says. Wondering if it's possible to do a 444 journey within London (that isn't Waterloo-Clapham Junction) between Waterloo and Surbiton (or vice versa).

    Some services to/from Alton in the peaks are formed of a class 444, which will call at Surbiton. I'm not sure which ones are booked for this.

    MON-FRI the only 444's to call at SURBITON are:

    UP TO WATERLOO
    0640 5 car
    1716 10 car
    1907 5 car
    2116 10 car

    ONLY ONE IN THE DOWN DIRECTION
    1625 WAT-ALTON 5 car (This is by the way the only Alton service that is a 444 returning with the 1907 at Surbiton)

    So you could go 1625 ex WAT and come back on the 1716.

    Hope this helps.

    That's all very useful. Thank you for the information.

    Just to build on what has already been said that the 0912 from Surbiton, next stop waterloo is also a 5 car.

    Last year I had a 444 terminating at Basingstoke which called at Surbiton during the evening peak. Forgot what train this was - back when South West Trains was still here.

    It would have been the 16:42 WAT-BAS that was a 5 car 444, first stop Surbiton. Horrendous train to catch - as is/was the 16:25 to Alton.
    Is the 16:42 now a 450? (I assume 8 car at least?)

    1642 is an 8 car 450.

    Yeah that sounds about right. It was indeed a very packed train.

    Back in the old days of 442s, they used to call additionally at Surbiton during the Hampton Court flower show. Not sure if the equivalent services do nowadays.
