The time of every train on Britain's largest rail franchise, Govia Thameslink (GTR), will change as part of a major shake-up. Arrival and departure times are being re-set from Sunday and some services will call at different stations. Some signal workers have claimed it is going to be 'a disaster', the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said. GTR said nearly 400 extra trains each day would bring 'a significant boost'. The company said it would be running about 3,600 trains across its network - which includes Southern rail, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Great Northern.
The RMT union warns of "disastrous consequences" as Govia Thameslink changes its entire timetable.
