I got my usual train home from Cannon Street last night and it stopped at Charlton so as far as I could tell, all was ok now. What on earth is going on now South Eastern!

I understand the issue is with the Blackheath Branch Line.
Not sure if Cannon Street puffers use that stretch of track but I could be wrong!!!

As I understand the trains affected are the semi fast services to and from Gillingham via Woolwich Arsenal. it is these that travel between Charlton and Blackheath.
