Outcry over mass train cancellations as new Thameslink timetable begins
London passengers find many of the promised new services not running
Rail passengers trying to use the upgraded £7bn Thameslink service on Sunday were met with mass train cancellations and no information about why services were not running.
A huge publicity drive backed Sunday’s biggest ever timetable change but, despite the big build-up, passengers trying to get into and around London found few of the promised new services were actually running. For more than a year, Govia Trains has been working on an ambitious plan to merge its Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern train operations and introduce a raft of promised improvements.
