The FCC combines the service of the Thameslink railway line between Brighton and Bedford with services along the East Coast Main Line from King’s Cross station and Moorgate station to Peterborough station, Cambridge Station and King’s Lynn Station.
One of the main connections that this train guarantees is that with Gatwick Airport, with which in half an hour you can reach the London Bridge Station, practically in the center of the city; but there are many stations that this important train connects in all the south of England, among which is also Brighton, the coastal city most loved by the English. To mention a few: Kings Cross station, Cambridge station, St Pancras station, Luton station, Brighton station, Blackfriars station, London Bridge station, Moorgate Station, Wimbledon station and Finsbury Park Station.
