This year, all the Charing Cross / Cannon Street corridor is blocked but the services between London and Hastings are diverted via Redhill to London Bridge Central side. This causes pathing issues with getting an early service arriving at West St Leonards in time and precludes our serving Orpington & Sevenoaks with it. Therefore, there is a service from London Victoria, which has an 8 minute connection at Tonbridge into the 0841 all stations service. This train has to cover another service amended by the London Bridge work as well so for completeness, I've shown all stations it calls at. I’ve asked for both trains to run as 8 car.
This does mean an earlier departure from London than in previous years, but correspondingly, anyone from London arrives at West St Leonards 20 minutes earlier than in the recent past.
