Two more trains to Crofton Park by 2018

Getting reliable information about what is actually going to happen to our rail services in the future is needlessly and infuriatingly difficult, so we're reduced to leaping on vague scraps of information given out by customer relations teams on Twitter.

In response to huffy Tweets by Crofton Park commuters fed up with lousy service, Thameslink appears to have confirmed that there will be two more trains per hour calling at the station by 2018. That would be a 50% increase in capacity and take the service up to a respectable frequency.
