Farewell First Capital Connect, hello Govia Thameslink Railway
Since Sunday 14 September you might have noticed a different name being announced at your local station. Govia Thameslink Railway have now replaced First Capital Connect as train operator for the Great Northern and Thameslink routes.
The Thameslink route is part of the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern franchise, which will also include Southern and Gatwick Express from 2015. Govia Thameslink Railway will be the largest train operating company in the UK, with more passengers, more people and more trains than anyone else in the country.
