South Eastern are running a Slam Door special on Saturday 23rd July called "The Flush Do'or". The train departs Blackfriars at 08.59 and the route is Catford - Chatham - Deal (where I presume the train reverses) - Ashford - Maidstone - Chislehurst (reverse) - Hastings - Ore (reverse) - Tonbridge - London Bridge (arr circa 17.00). The tour was originally being discussed as a staff special but is now open to the general public. Fare is £10.00 payable on the day (no advance bookings).

Is this to replace the other tour on August 20th or to run as well. Why can't they make it an hour later. <(

I have no other information then that, I would assume that this isn't taking over the main tour in August as this was originally planned as a Staff Tour but then opened up to the public.

The timings are abysmal, however I will go. I'll be using my North East Rover to Retford, and combo CDRs from there. I am due London at 0800 so in theory I can be 30 mins late and still make it.
