North Downs line - Reading via Guildford and Redhill to Gatwick

Description of line

From Reading to Guildford via Wokingham and North Camp (Farnborough), the along the base of the North Downs to Dorking West, Deepdene, Reigate and Redhill. Train route reverses for short trip to Gatwick airport

Service offered

Hourly express trains ... slower trains calling at all stations run with less frequency.

Peak flows

This is a line that's very much out of FGW's main territory; Reading to Wokingham also served by South West Trains, who also provide the majority of services at Guildford.

Dorking Town, and Reigate / Redhill / Gatwick also served by Southern.
