Chuka has received the following update on Thameslink services from the Managing Director of First Capital Connect (who operate the service), Neal Lawson. ¬†Thameslink trains run out of Streatham and Tulse Hill rail stations which serve Chuka’s constituents. ¬†Further updates will be posted as and when we receive them – Chuka is pressing the rail company to resolve the problems as soon as possible. ¬†
I can confirm we are running a significantly reduced service this evening peak.
We are running to the booked timetable but there are a large number of cancellations. We are advising customers to check our live departure boards on the First Capital Connect website for the latest information.
Ticket acceptance on other routes and with other operators has not changed since my last email to you.
There is the potential for some disruption tomorrow morning but our strong desire is to avoid this by returning all our trains to their correct start points north and south of London before the route across central London is closed tonight for engineering work.
Our advice to customers is to check the live departures board on our website tomorrow morning, www.firstcapitalconnect.co.uk.
Managing Director, First Capital Connect
