The Oxted line is a railway in southern England and part of the Southern franchise. The railway splits into two branches towards the south and has direct trains throughout to London termini. The line branches from the Brighton Main Line (which has two diverging northern branches) at South Croydon in Greater London. The line then splits into two branches at Hurst Green, a little after Oxted. One of these branches ends at East Grinstead, the other at Uckfield. The line between East Croydon and Hurst Green is double-track throughout, as is all of the East Grinstead branch, and all this route is electrified. The Uckfield branch has two tracks as far as Hever; the rest of the line is mostly single-track, but with two short double-track sections (a passing loop at Ashurst, and a short distance between Crowborough and just north of Buxted).
A timetable from 12/9/23 between 4:45am and 01:05am the next day has been used. There are some abnormalities*, however, the main services include:
2tph London Victoria <-> East Grinstead (SN)
1tph London Bridge <-> Uckfield (SN)
+ 3 Thameslink services in the morning and evening peak
2 departmental services around midday
*London Victoria <-> East Grinstead services are reduced to 1tph between 10:30am and 3pm
I’m hoping to be able to add in a Sunday timetable before the December timetable change too.
Any feedback is welcome, thanks!
