Before I booked my Charlton ticket I had a quick look at trains and there were lots of options. I've just gone in to book something and it is showing that the only trains running anywhere between Brighton and London are the Gatwick Express, stopping only at Haywards Heath and Gatwick.

Anyone know if there is any strike action or engineering works which could have caused this ? Or, have I simply somehow messed up my searches....?

I'm hoping the final Christmas family obligation shakedown leaves me able to go.
If so it's looking like driving is sadly there best option. If so I'll post again as could squeeze in 7 passengers (or 5 more comfortably).

Should be fine. I looked last week and there were loads of trains between Brighton and London Bridge. I suspect as someone else posted this is the new timetable getting loaded. Less of a rush as it'll be in place a day or so before the strikes.

What you want to be careful of is if it goes to ET and penalties. Then you're probably looking at hitting the overnight engineering work and getting home at around 2am or so. Bus from either Haywards Heath or Three Bridges, can't remember which, after around midnight.

I might be wrong but wouldn't it go straight to pens with no ET?

Confirmed on the Southern website, the planners are currently broken as predicted by others

Incorrect journey planners

We currently have a fault with the journey planners and live departure boards not showing some trains and are working with our industry partners to resolve. Please check back later for any updates.
