Readers wanting to find out about train links between Bedford and Brighton can get the information very efficiently on Thameslink's web site. While there, they may notice that the top of each page is decorated with an attractive photograph of Brighton's West Pier - in undamaged condition.

Given the parallels between the long struggles to prevent the pier's decline and to improve the Thameslink network, this seems curiously appropriate.
