The Gatwick Express service
Coming home from Brighton to East Croydon last Monday evening, my Wife and I travelled on the Gatwick Express service. Not that we wanted to alight at Gatwick then but it was scheduled to stop at East Croydon and so we were happy for the fast train service home and what a fast service it was too. The usual tannoy announcements told us that we were on the Gatwick Express service as we pulled out of Brighton station dead on time and in no time at all we had arrived back at East Croydon station. We got off of that Gatwick Express train there thinking how fast we had made it back home. And all because the train was not scheduled to stop at Gatwick. We went through that busy Airport station like a dose of salts.
