Class 700 Routes:
As part of the Thameslink Programme, Class 700 EMU trains have already replaced the Class 319s and Class 700 EMU trains are to enter service between Cambridge and Maidstone. Thameslink Class 700 EMU trains have started on the Great Northern network on the Peterborough to London Kings Cross route. Class 700 EMU trains have replaced 19 Class 365s on this route. The Thameslink Class 700 EMU trains have also started on peak-time services from London Bridge to Littlehampton and on weekday-only services from London Bridge to Horsham. The Littlehampton service now starts from Bedford instead of London Bridge. Class 700 trains from Peterborough and Cambridge have joined the Thameslink route with six off-peak trains being operated from Horsham to Peterborough via Finsbury Park and Brighton to Cambridge. Class 700 EMU trains also entered service on the new Rainham to Luton service, having replaced the Class 465s from Gillingham to London Charing Cross.
