Ugh. What a nightmare. So no direct trains to LBG from FOH at all over Christmas? Royal pain in the backside.


#3

It’s due to Victoria’s Southern platforms being closed over Christmas. The long distance services are diverted to London Bridge, so the platform slots used on our line are the first to go as we have a regular Overground service.

This has already happened on some Sundays this year.

When exactly does that start - on Christmas Eve? Or is there an impact on that weekend of 22/23 Dec?
Thanks!

Southern trains run on the Saturday, not on the Sunday.
