A train company will be adding extra train services to its timetable this spring.

Thameslink announced today (Tuesday) that from May 2020 commuters using stations between West Hampstead and Luton on Saturdays will see two more trains every hour to and from London - and direct services to and from North Kent.

Kentish Town will continue to be served by four trains per hour each way on the route between St Albans and Sutton.

Thameslink will also be extending its half-hourly service between Kentish Town and Rainham to Luton from May 23.

This means trains will call at at West Hampstead, Mill Hill Broadway, Elstree & Borehamwood, Radlett, St Albans, Harpenden and Luton Airport Parkway.

There are no other permanent timetable changes planned for this part of the Thameslink network.

Thameslink says the improvements will increase connectivity to Luton Airport on Saturdays for the entire Thameslink network.

Managing director Tom Moran said: “These extended services will give thousands of our passengers a more frequent Saturday service to and from central London, improve our service for travellers using Luton Airport, and provide more weekend travel options on direct trains to popular destinations such as Greenwich.”
