Let’s Stop GTR/Southern Reducing The Number Of Trains Through Norbury

We have until 8 December to tell Southern Railway not to cut two trains per off-peak hour from 2018.

This would be achieved by withdrawing the  existing Victoria all stations to East Croydon and Caterham (Tattenham Corner in the evenings) service.

This cut is proposed by GTR/Southern Railway in their consultation on their timetable for 2018. Also proposed is the diversion in the off peak hours of the existing London Bridge to West Croydon service to East Croydon.

They are asking whether the West London line service to Watford   should start in the peak hours from Selhurst, Purley or Coulsdon Town.

You can see the details on pages 40 to 51 of the consultation document at


The best way to respond is by completing the online questionnaire (In particular questions  54-64)


Note: Thanks to Charles King of the East Surrey Transport Committee who attended the Transport public meeting organised by the Love Norbury Joint Planning Committee on Monday 28 November.
