Yes I have noticed this. Often get people running over the bridge at Reedham. Train is the same time every day, well meant to be.

Why would you turn up 10 minutes before departure? Is the platform that busy people are queuing ten deep?

I only use that station if there's strikes - my bus gets me there ten minutes before. Previously it has been heaving, but was fine this morning.

Well it appears those Southern wankers have changed their tune, and the Caterham line IS screwed after all.

Only one London bridge train all morning rush hour for the upper warlingham line. It's standing room only by Riddlesdown.

But according to Southern, the service is "stronger"...

I've emailed my MP about it; asked him what he has and will be doing to try and resolve the situation. Let's wait and see, but given the prick voted against NHS/fire fighter pay rises last night and recently filibustered to stop gays from being pardoned, I cannot imagine that he gives a shit about commuters.

glad to hear you are now more frequently blaming the company and the MPs/Government for the Southern fiasco rather than the workers. Think you are starting to see the light.

I didn't even bother today as there's only one London Bridge train running. Last time they did this you couldn't even board trains at Sanderstead, was totally rammed.

The transport secretary has been given two weeks to produce a report on its handing into the Southern rail franchise or face a judicial review.
The Association of British Commuters (ABC) took the government to the High Court over what it described as the Southern rail "fiasco".
ABC said ministers acted unlawfully by failing to determine whether managers had breached franchise obligations.
The ruling comes as the drivers' union, Aslef, began a new overtime ban.
Mr Justice Ouseley said he was requiring Chris Grayling to publish a report within 14 days.
Aslef, which has been in dispute with Southern over the driver-only-operated trains and the role of train staff for over a year, started its latest overtime earlier.
Southern has been forced to introduced a revised timetable axing about a quarter of services affecting services in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.
Before the hearing, Summer Dean, of ABC, said: "Passengers are the only people who still don't have a voice in this fiasco, and many thousands of them support us in our efforts to reveal the truth behind the Department for Transport's involvement in Southern Rail."
ABC said ministers acted unlawfully by failing to determine whether managers had breached franchise obligations.

Don't worry, I'll start blaming drivers again (and ASLEF) if you vote for more industrial action

Don't think anyone blames drivers for disruption caused by them not working overtime. That is purely Southern's fault for building their operating model on overtime.

Innocent question but where have the Union been on the matter of overtime in previous negotiations with the rail companies?
