No trains from FOH on Saturday, Sep 2nd



It would appear that there are not trains on Saturday from FOH. The overground isn’t running between West Croydon and New Cross Gate. Replacement bus service for Southers between LBG and West Croydon via Sydenham.

Interestingly, no mention of replacement bus service on the Southern Site…

Network Rail are carrying out engineering work between London Bridge and East Croydon, closing some lines.

Apparently there IS something buried on the Southern Site:


I see its both Saturday and Sunday that we are without trains/overground.



Will just have to stay on the couch in front of the telly eating crisps on Sunday then (no change from normal).


Anyone know which FOH entrance the rail replacement bus depart from?


They use existing bus stops and it should be signposted.
Good luck!


Rail replacement bus from towards NXG is next to Barclays. We were the last 2 allowed on the bus so bus was full at HOP and Brockley. Peopke got on at back as people git off so driver let noone off at front. Loads couldn’t get on. Now at NXG and next overground leaves in 22 minutes.
