It’s come to my attention that with this route, will we get the full loop or will we ONLY get the Gravesend branch (excluding Maidstone West)? What is the full loop? Some services from St. Pancras to Faversham go via Ramsgate and then head back to St. Pancras to avoid a reversal. As you can see here, this is what is known as a St. Pancras ‘rounder’ service. It goes from St. Pancras to St. Pancras via Ashford International, Ramsgate and Faversham. This the the second St. Pancras ‘rounder’ service. It goes from St. Pancras to St. Pancras via Gravesend, Faversham and Margate. So the St. Pancras rounder services use the loop in both directions. Map: What happens if we only get the Gravesend branch? This would mean that some Faversham services which usually go via Ramsgate, as well as Margate services, would only be drivable from St. Pancras to Ebbsfleet International. In other words, a distance of 22 miles with a journey time of only 23 minutes. Real life South Eastern High Speed services From St. Pancras International: - 1tph to Faversham via Gravesend - 1tph to St. Pancras via Ramsgate - 1tph to St. Pancras via Faversham - 1tph to Margate What will we get in TSW? I’m hoping we’ll get the whole route, as if we only get that Gravesend branch, that means that we’ll only get one ‘full length’ service (Faversham terminator) as the other three services (St. Pancras rounders and Margate) will be cut short at Ebbsfleet and Faversham.
