Expected to continue until 09.00. Trains from Hayes terminating at New Cross, trains from Gravesend via Sidcup are being diverted to Orpington.

Is this the first time there have been direct services from Gravesend to Orpington?

It is unusual for the curve at Hither Green to be used for passenger services.

That's what I thought, I suppose there was nowhere else they could send trains from Sidcup?

The New Cross terminators were planned. The Loop trains continued to be diverted until around 1400. Despite the NRE report, the issue must have been at Hither Green, because the Victoria- Lewisham-Tonbridge services ran.

Indeed it is, though it is valuable for ECS.

I lived there for years, and never knew it to happen then, even for empty stock.

We used to have a turn that run round there every single day. Pretty sure ECS goes round there on daily basis. I've been round there in service on a few occasions.
