    Blackfrairs drivers are trained to drive 319 & 377. They have shift pretty much all round the clock as they drive services out of London Bridge during Core shut downs.

    Kings Cross I cant be 100% sure but guess they would be able to drive 313, 317 & 365's. As for hours, guessing most of the time as well.

    Don't forget the 321's out of Kings Cross too- they have 321401-410 & 418-20.

    You mean Kings Cross do the Great Northern route; ECML to Peterborough, Cambridge/Ely/Kings Lynn, local services to Hertford North & Welwyn Garden City.

    Thameslink do the Cross City through London bit, north up to Luton & Bedford (along the Midland Mainline) and south to Brighton, Croydon etc.

    Is that what you meant?

    I'm sure I once read somewhere that Southern drivers covered some driving duties on the south of the Thameslink route... is this right?

    Not as far as I'm aware, but you might be thinking about the joint FCC/South Eastern service from Bedford - Ashford.

    Southeastern drivers do share to some duties with FCC drivers as our drivers go down to Sevenoaks for them.

    We did have some freight drivers in when the 377's first game in but not any more.
