Considering that we've known that the Wimbledon loop is set to become a standard Blackfriars terminating line, the only people in South East London set to benefit are those who live on the Sevenoaks line such as Crofton Park and Peckham Rye.

It seems the sell to the outer London and Surrey/Sussex commuters is we'll get you straight into Central London without picking up those inner London commuters on the way up, making your journey faster.

I'm sure those Guildford/Dorking commuters who used to travel up to LB prefer not having to pick up passengers at FH and Sydenham as in the past pre ELL.

I wouldn't be surprised if once the franchise goes through, they'll give us less trains, but extend the platforms to 12 carriages to cram us on to the remaining trains to London Bridge. The ELL seems to have made it harder for us to bargain considering we now have more trains than some parts of South London not on the tube.
