C2C have recently published a proposed timetable for December 2015 which reveals that the capacity at Upminster is to be reduced due to more people on arriving trains
The C2C website shows a table comparing the current trains to the new train schedule, with details regarding projected capacity levels. The table shows that although there will be an increase in trains serving Upminster station it’s predicted that seats are unlikely. In fact out of the 26 services from Upminster towards London that it is estimated that only 1 train will have seats available when it arrives at the station.
The journey towards Fenchurch Street will also be longer due to all peak trains stopping at all stops between Upminster and Fenchurch Street, although this will be good news for anyone not going straight to Fenchurch Street
