What I can't work out is why on the Wednesday there appears to be 3tph to/from Sandy towards London, the two normal TL Horsham services, plus one to King's Cross. This appears to be in addition to the peak-time GN fasts.

Edit: and on the Friday

id say give it a chance to do the upload, check back in the morning. itll be publishing thousands of schedules tonight and is probably only half way through at the moment, if that.

How long does it take to out through changes such as this?

Disappointing that the first southbound train from Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill isn’t until after 08:30 on the Weds and Fri. I’d have thought it should have been possible to have something starting out of Three Bridges depot a good time earlier.

On the Wednesday and Friday, it appears Southern via Forest Hill will start on time, but the Overground services that share the line don't start up until around 0730 with first services starting from New Cross Gate.

It may be that the Southern timetable isn't uploaded yet.

Bar one 8 car 387 circuit, every GTR ECML services will be 700/717.
Bet GTR wish they had toilets on the 717 now. Could've stuck a 12 car 717s on all routes. They gobble up the crowds on platforms impressively.

Although don't think they are tested for passenger services beyond Hitchin on the mainline and Baldock on the Cambridge Branch.

What have toilets got to do with it? If 717s are clear for the route and needed for capacity they would be used but don't offer much over a 700 for that purpose.


Yes, 700s do as well.
Rules state journeys over a certain distance require toilets on board

700s do a good job, but 717s are better crowd gobblers

Which rules? Crossrail services from Reading to Shenfield or Abbey Wood will mean an awfully long time without a toilet...

Nothing will run before 0715 on Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.

They're essentially the same, other than the 700s having a 1st class area (half of which is permanently declassified).

700s are either 12-car or 8-car so they gobble up more people than a 6-car 717.

The Weds/Fri/Sun Great Northern timetables haven’t been uploaded yet. Any ideas on what the Kings Cross to Cambridge and Ely will look like?

They seem to have arrived now.

Sunday frequency (1 Kings Lynn to Kings Cross, fast from Cambridge; 2 'Thameslink' from Cambridge, one semi-fast, one stopper, though both terminating at Kings Cross, nothing through the core) starting about 0730, though at 'weekday' times (eg. the up Ely departures are around xx17).

Sunday itself has engineering work blocking Cambridge North to Ely, so that's not going to be a great next weekend for me :rolleyes:
