Class 377 South Central Trains

The South Central franchise end date was brought forward to September 2009 upon the integration of the Gatwick Express service, to allow the new operator to be in place during major changes to the timetable in and around South London in December 2009. In the run-up to the bidding process for the franchise, reports emerged suggesting that Transport for London, the operator of the London Overground service, wished to take control of all overground services in South London, including the ‘Metro’ area of the South Central franchise. However, such a transfer never took place and the DfT put out the entire franchise for tender.
