Thameslink 2000 (sorry Thameslink Programme)[edit]

Someone - ideally someone who knows more about it than me - should say something about the major building works that are going to happen with the 'Thameslink' expansion works due to start in a couple of years. As I understand it, the South Eastern service will be diverted elsewhere while the main 'Thameslink' platforms are extended across the river to allow 12 carriages to be used on the route.

Ahh yes. Having done some reading on the topic in the past its somewhat confusing. I've copied some text in from the thameslink article. Pickle 08:32, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
That was quick! I was in the process of adding two lines and the link to the main Thameslink Programme article when you did that - thanks. Lovingboth 08:40, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Almost entirely off-topic, but the combination of this and the December 2007 closure of the East London Line for about three years is going to make travel from my bit of SE London much more difficult for two years. I'm not sure that there's been an announcement about what's going to happen to the South Eastern service, for example... diverted to Victoria? terminated at Elephant and Castle?? Lovingboth 08:44, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Nothing has been decided yet, but to the best of my knowledge most of the SER trains to/from Blackfriars will be operated in partnership with First Capital Connect and sent straight through the Thameslink tunnels (so they will still call at Blackfriars); a handful in the evening peak may well be diverted to Victoria. The new service patterns will be implemented this December. Edvid (talk) 15:02, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Edit Reversion[edit]

An editor who had not logged in added a paragraph referring to a non-exitant Central Express Brighton to Newcastle service. I have reverted the edit Wilmot1 (talk) 17:13, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

LU Station Closure[edit]

The London Underground map states that Blackfriars will close in March 2009 (oresumably for refurbishment) and re-open in 2011. Anyone have any more info? If so, can they add please? Krytenia (talk) 23:12, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

The article as it stood said the Underground station is closed to commuters. I think that's a bit misleading as it indicates it's open to passengers who don't fall into that category (eg:tourists) and could be misinterpreted as meaning the LUL station is open except in rush hours, or something equally unfortunate. I have changed it to make a bit more sense, if you have a better idea then go ahead... --Peeky44 What's on your mind? 21:41, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Wording problem[edit]

Hi. Forgive me if I am confused, but at the moment, under Current developments/Station rebuild, we have this: "The Underground station will also see major enhancements,[10] with a new roof of glazed north lights and partial-height glazed side panels to be installed along the entire length of the bridge." Surely the enhancements described (roof, bridge side panels) are to the mainline station, not the tube? I am tempted to alter it myself but a knowledgeable person may well make a neater job of it. Or am I just missing the point somehow? Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 11:54, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:34, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
