Made me reminisce about the days of Connex when I would get the fast train from FH to LB, without stopping at HOP or Brockley. [/quote]
There were fast trains like that during the peak even during the BR/Network SouthEast era, although they went to such delightful places as Guildford and Dorking.
You may also remember the off-peak fasts to Caterham which didn’t stop at Brockley, HOP, Penge West and Anerley. Eventually demand meant Brockley and HOP were added, but still were fast between Sydenham and Norwood Junction.
