    On the upcoming St Pancras to Faversham high speed route, where does the 375 and 465 operate to/from?

    On YT videos I’ve only seen the 375 and 395 at Faversham and the 375 doesn’t go to St Pancras only the 395. I haven’t seen the 465 at either station.

    The 465’s/375’s are probably gonna run from Faversham to Gravesend or Northfleet
    They can’t go to Cannon Street or Victoria since it doesn’t say the route will go there

    Any 375/465 services terminating at Faversham? I would enjoy doing a turn back with the same train.

    I think they are all onward journeys.

    It'll most likely just be portal to portal runs

    I really hope they add in the Sheerness branch—it would give a lot of depth to the services. Nevertheless, most services operated by the 375s and 465s will probably be portal to portal, with the occasional train terminating at Faversham.

    Some 395 services terminate at Faversham. All (if I'm not mistaken) 375 services run through Faversham. 465s only run as far as Gillingham most of the time, except on the Sheerness branch (assuming it is included), where 466s used to be used, but had to be replaced with 375s because the 466s aren't PRM compliant.

    I think PRM stands for Person with Reduced Mobility

    MYG92 is right. From the start of this year all trains in Britain had to be PRM compliant which has certain requirements of accessibility. Older trains had to be refurbished if not already compliant or retired from service although some have been given a derogation to run for a bit longer (eg EMR HSTs or pacers) .

    As MYG92 says, Persons With Reduced Mobility. Class 465s were fitted with PRM-compliant toilets (the big ones with automatic doors), but 466s weren't for some reason. They're allowed to run when connected to 465s as they often are, and they can be used on the microscopic Bromley North branch line, but on the Sheerness branch, they could not be used, so they were replaced with Class 375/3s (which I believe have run the service previously, and are used by Southeastern regularly when they need to replace other trains, such as when they temporarily replaced Class 395s on Dover/Ramsgate shuttle services.
