Hourly HS1 train service from Jan 2015

Posted on Oct 29, 2014

Victory! Deal and Sandwich are to get an extension of the current High Speed rail service from January 2015 that will provide two high speed trains every hour to St Pancras, one via Dover and the other via Ramsgate, Margate and Faversham.

An all day loop service around the Kent coast using the Javelin HS1 trains will also start in January 2015.

This is a massive victory for the Trains4Deal campaign and will mean train times to and from London will be reduced to around 1hr 20 mins throughout the day and for the first time there will be a direct, fast rail service to the towns around the Kent coast late into the night and from early morning.
