Not as bad

The story I heard this morning was breaking and the intelligence given to the radio station was slightly out.

ALB has told me that the tunnel with flooding is to the north of Farringdon, the one between St Pancras, the now-closed Kings Cross Thameslink and Farringdon. I believe that is why there will be no Thameslink service southbound from St Pancras on Saturday and the Gatwick/Brighton services will start at Farringdon. Apparently although water was spotted in the tunnel, there was nothing like the amount that left the track flooded last weekend and trains were able to get through, albeit more slowly than usual - and the service has been reduced by about 40 percent as a precaution. Hopefully, the water won't get worse and the service will be as advertised at the weekend.
