Changing Train Times

Having got used to one timetable on Southeastern trains, everything is about to change.  Southeastern will soon be introducing their new timetable on services into Charing Cross and Cannon Street.  From Bexley, Albany Park and Sidcup into London in the morning the train times don't seem to have altered that much - only by a few minutes.  However after 8.00pm, the weekday half hourly service from Charing Cross to Dartford via Sidcup has shifted from 04 and 34 minutes past the hour to 22 and 52 minutes past the hour just to catch out the unwary.  Late evening services to Bexleyheath and Welling will depart at 25 and 55 minutes past the hour from Charing Cross.  We'll have to wait and see how robust the new scheduling is.  When C2C introduced a new timetable from Fenchurch Street a couple of years back, they had to abandon it after a few days because reliability plummeted.  Fingers crossed on this one.  The fun begins on Monday 13 December.  See www.southeasternrailway.co.uk for more details.
