Thameslink will introduce a new service in 2018 from Maidstone East to Cambridge. The new service will call at West Malling, Borough Green, Otford, Swanley then fast to London bridge, it will serve Thameslink core stations then all stations up to Cambridge. In a document, it stated Swanley will be served as it serves a large population, the station received 1.3 million passengers in 2015 compared to St Mary Crays 1.8 million reffered to as a "minor station in greater london" even though it's busier than Swanley.  To travel to Blackfrias it takes 43 minutes, compared to around 25 minutes on the new service. 

Swanley will have 7 trains an hour to London compared to SMCs 4. Swanley has always had a better trainame service and that's unfair considering it is less busy than SMC
