No off-peak trains during November: On Monday (2nd November) construction work starts on extending the two platforms at Crowborough Railway Station.  It is part of a wider scheme to lengthen all 12 platforms on the Oxted line to enable Southern to run 10-coach trains between Uckfield and London Bridge.
