Rail passengers have taken to social media to report disruption on Thameslink services on the second day of its new interim timetable.
National Rail has said there is no disruption expected today, however a number of people have posted on Twitter that they have been experiencing cancellations to peak-time services.
The Department for Transport has previously warned Govia Thameslink Railway, which also runs Great Northern and Southern services, they were “in the last-chance saloon” with regards to disruption on their services.
The new interim timetable is Thameslink’s third in two months, after one introduced on May 20 led to delays, cancellations and overcrowding.
Twitter user Johnny Arthur posted this morning: “It’s possible to sequence the human genome, but Govia Thameslink are now on their third attempt at designing a rail timetable.”
