INTRODUCTION:

After many years with its own "Table 50" in the GBTT this year it was no more. Everything was amalgamated into Table 51.

Whilst there was little change to the timings of the services, there certainly was to the dates of operatio with  the start of the winter timetable on the 28th of September.

The Dover train was withdrawn on winter Saturdays completely and for several weeks it only ran Liverpool to Reading and vice versa. The Brighton services were also diverted via Redhill and Guildford for the same period. I assume this was due to the construction of the North Pole Eurostar Depot which severed the connection to the West of England mainline at Old Oak Common. After this date trains would have been routed via West London Junction before turning 180 degrees and heading south for Acton Wells Junction.

If you know different please let me know.

Sundays, no service to or from Kent and the Brighton service, after serving Manchester enroute to Scotland last year now ran directly up the WCML from Birmingham.
