The recent snow and ice has prompted the deployment of 465 023 on the Saturday 'Popper' ('Popper' is the nickname of the Bromley North Branch Shuttle,) as followers will know the Saturday 'Popper' is now mostly 3tph after the December timetable change. Class 465s are twice the length as the usual 466, meaning that they have more pick-ups and therefore less chance of breaking down in the ice. A small photoshoot is viewable in the gallery
.After recently viewing the 2009/10 passenger user statistics I discovered that Grove Park had the 19th highest amount of Interchange numbers in Britain. The figure quoted is 1.1 million and the Bromley North branch (Bromley North + Sundridge Park) accounts for roughly 0.9 million of it. I'm sure this comes as no surprise to the crowds which climb the Grove Park footbridge in the peaks and on Saturdays (from memory).
