Rail service boost over Diamond Jubilee weekend

RAIL services across East Sussex will be boosted over the Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend.

Southeastern has said that it will be putting on a Saturday service for passengers on both Monday, June 4 and Tuesday, June 5, as opposed to a Sunday service.

A company spokesman said: “We’re running extra trains for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations to provide more travel options for our passengers who will be in London for the festivities.

“Where normally we’d be operating a Sunday timetable on a public holiday, we’ll be running a Saturday service on both days. We’re also running some additional trains on the Monday evening after midnight to help people get home following the concert at Buckingham Palace.”
