Sir: You readers may like to be warned. Recently we planned to take the Thameslink train from Flitwick to London Blackfriars, a straight enough direct journey of just under one hour. We had not got the Thameslink timetable to hand so we tried Railtrack on the web. The result was a choice of journey times ranging from just over two hours to three-and-a-quarter hours, but you do take in Bedford (north of Flitwick), London St Pancreas, London Bridge, London Cannon Street and, eventually, London Blackfriars; four changes, three trains and two tube journeys later.
