    Got to be a mistake unless there is an unadvertised trial going on (which I rather doubt).

    That'll be an error with the NR timetable data. Garbage in, garbage out.

    I think the idea was originally it was all First Class. Or that's the impression I got.

    Same. I recall when SouthEastern were asked why there was no first class accommodation their response was that the service quality was such that it was already a premium product and therefore first class was unnecessary.

    Of course if they had their way I don't think they'd have first class at all as much of their Electrostar stock was originally specified without first class.

    The entire current NRT is riddled with silly errors - I've read several pages about it in Rail 775 over the weekend.

    Has to be said the 395s are extremely comfortable which fits the 'first class service' idea.

    Yep, I mean there aren't any seats that lack the basics of, oh I don't know armrests or anything like that, are there ;)

    Out of interest, can anyone confirm if this train splits at Dover? I catch the 1J19 09:16 from Ashford to St Pancras which starts from P1 at Dover and the only thing through P1 at Dover before hand is this train (according to RTT).

    TIA

    That's correct. The 12 car train on 1L10 splits at Dover - the front portion 'continues' and departs at 08:34 as per the RTT schedule linked to above. The rear portion 'returns' at 08:49 as 1J19, calling at Ashford at 09:16.
