More seats on trains on Reading to Waterloo line

I have been told by South Western trains that they are responding to our lobbying for more seats at peak times on the Reading-Waterloo line. They are planning to run 10 carriage trains instead of the present 8 carriage trains on the following services:

Reading to Waterloo morning 06.12, 06.23, 06.42, 06.54, 07.12,07.24

Waterloo to Reading evening 16.05, 16.20, 16.35, 17.35, 17.50, 18.05, 18.35, 18.50

The new services start on December 10th

    Well we have longer platforms for trains in SW London, but the rush hour trains are still only eight carriages. Off peak they drop to four. So at weekends the trains are still packed – unless there are engineering works when there are no trains.

    Even the Northern line Tube was packed at Clapham Common at 11.30pm last Wednesday.
