Some passengers on the Southeastern franchise, linking Kent and East Sussex with the capital, found themselves paying premium fares for the new high speed Javelin services which did not even stop at their stations.

I pay a premium price for a Southeastern Highspeed season ticket from Kent to St Pancras. Although the Highspeed trains pass through Deal station they dont allow passengers to board even though they are empty so I have to get a mainline train to Dover and then change. Its one thing not to plan for ovecrowding but to allow empty trains to pass through commuter stations is disgraceful.


  1. The Dover to Deal evening trains are a joke - I now drive as fed up with long delays.

  2. Deal has been excluded from the economic gains that other towns in Kent with similar populations have benefited from. How can empty trains passing through our town be value for money?
