      Again ?
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      There does appear to be some sort of service......
      Half hourly between Haywards Heath and Brighton, calling all stations, but going via Hove....!!!

      What is also a pain is that Southern never show their extra trains they run, both between Brighton and Falmer, and between Brighton and Worthing, until the Saturday morning.
      So, at the moment there are only shown the normal 4 trains an hour from Brighton to Falmer, before the match, with no extra trains back from Brighton towards Worthing, especially as this weekend there are no London trains on the west coast.

      Normally, I would agree.

      But why so on this occasion? Maintenance schedules are worked out months in advance - certainly way before the fixtures come out.

      Ok, but sorry to reffer back to a previous thread abouth Gatwick Express....
      Again this morning my service was reduced to 5 carriages (normaly 10), this being the 5 time in 2 weeks so roughly 25% of my journys. When this happens it is very difficult to get a seat! so consequently spent my commute this morning standing next to the toilet with some fat bas***d who hasn’t yet grasped the concept of covering your nose/mouth when sneezing!
      My point being, this is meant to be a "premium" service and they certainly know how to charge a "premium" to use the GE but are very quick to reduce the bloody train sizes thus causeing discomfort to poor sods like myself!

      Thats because those trains are incredibly old - the base equipment is over 40 years old, some of which actually caught fire on a service at South Croydon yesterday - probably why your journey this morning was ran with a shorter train - the other alternative was to cancel, A shorter than normal train is better than no train !!

      Not months, but over a YEAR in advance. If anyone is to blame, then its the FL.
