From now until next week, there is bunting, flags and even a life-sized knitted Queen. Staff will be wearing red, white and blue to give some Jubilee cheer to customers over the Queen's four-day celebration to mark a remarkable 70 years of service.
Stations are expected to be busy with an array of events being held across the network from Trooping of the Colour near Buckingham Palace to the Central Band of the Royal British Legion appearing at Canterbury Cathedral to a Bank Holiday House Party at Leeds Castle.
There is also a special steam-hauled 'Sparkling Afternoon Tea' train that will journey through the glorious High Weald countryside in the Garden of England. For information on all the Jubilee events across Southeastern's network please visit our dedicated website here.
Steve White, Managing Director, Southeastern Railway, says: "It promises to be a wonderful four-day extravaganza to celebrate our Queen's 70 years of service. Our team wanted to do our bit for our customers – to help them get in the spirit and enjoy the celebrations.
"All of our staff are looking forward to celebrating the Jubilee and playing our part as customers make their journeys across our network to celebrate the various events marking this special anniversary of the Queen's.”
One employee who will certainly be "doing his bit" to help customers celebrate is Dougie Calder, a Station Supervisor at Margate, who has worked on the railways since 1969. He vividly remembers working during the Silver Jubilee in 1977 when he was in his mid-twenties.
"It was a brilliant atmosphere. We didn’t decorate stations but there were lots of people travelling ‘all dressed up’ to go to street parties. And as soon as we had finished our shifts, we rushed off to join our own street parties!"
