More trains and fewer delays are being pledged by rail bosses after a new operating centre replaces signal boxes in Sussex and Surrey.

The centre at Three Bridges station will control signals on the London to Brighton line.

The centre, which is one of 14 planned across the country, is expected to be complete by 2013 and will also provide more information to passengers.
