Thameslink lays on extra services from Bedford station next month
Trains will have air conditioning which replaces the fresh air in each carriage every six to nine minutes
Thameslink - together with Great Northern and Southern - will be adding 1,000 extra services per week from May 16 as coronavirus restrictions ease.
Steve White, chief operating officer of parent operator Govia Thameslink Railway, said: “As lockdown restrictions are eased, we are reinstating services for our returning customers. These additional trains will help provide more space on board by adding more capacity on our busier routes at the most popular times. They will also provide more journey choices for customers at quieter times.
“Social distancing will become more challenging as more people start to travel again, so we’d advise everyone to use online journey planners which will highlight the busiest services to help you plan an alternative time or route if you can."
