I know that some us get very impatient waiting for news of timetable changes, but has the May North Downs timetable been 100% finalised?

There seem to be one or two omissions, notably the 0634 from Reading to Gatwick and the 0728 from Redhill to Reading, as well as some late evening trains

There's an 06:32 Reading to Gatwick (arrive 07:50), and an 07:28 Redhill to Reading (arrive 09:00) as far as  I can see - the 06:32 being a fast train and the 07:28 a stopper.

Thanks.

That is reassuring, although I am not seeing these times on the usual sites, National Rail, Open Trains etc, hence my query.

Understood.  Bit slow coming through there I suspect - see personal message.

Incidentally, the current (interim) franchise originally required GWR to publish new timetable booklets at least four weeks ahead of the change date. That was reduced to two weeks very soon after (May 2015). For information on their web site, the requirement is still for four weeks - by my reckoning, that's yesterday, and where are they?

Well they failed that at the December tt change. But to be fair they had redone a number of their tts.

Earlier in the year, it was noted on another thread that the times in OTT for today's new timetable had been moved to roughly where they would be for the 3 tph (2 Gatwick _+ 1 Redhill) service, though still with only 2 tph running as before. In the event, the times have only been shifted by the odd minute or two. I guess the most likely reason is to fit with the new GTR masterplan timetable at the far end, and the small timing changes of SWR services may be part of the same effect.
