Class 319 Trains
Withdrawn from the Thameslink Network
These units are dual-powered, from either 25 kV alternating current (AC) overhead lines (for services north of London), or 750 V direct current (DC) third rail (to the south).

Bedford to Brighton via Gatwick Airport
St Albans to Sutton via Hackbridge (Sutton Loop)
Luton to Sutton via Wimbledon (Sutton Loop)
West Hampstead to Sevenoaks via Catford
During peak times, some services terminated in South London. Such as Beckenham Junction, Bromley South, Kent House and Orpington.
