Eastbourne train full and standing at Lewes. Should be fun when the tourists try and pile on at Gatwick.

To any train planners on here, this Saturday 1025 ex-Lewes train is consistently very busy as it's the day trip to London train of choice. I know it's not straightforward to arrange stock but if there's a way of strengthening it to 12 cars it would save a lot of overcrowding disbenefit.

On train from Worthing to Victoria and that is packed. Just coming in to Gatwick so will tell them there is a Lewes train just behind and they should aim to get on that one
