Thameslink is actually much bigger and higher spec than Crossrail. It will only run at maximum 24 tph frequency through central London (as with Crossrail), but its route length will surpass the Tube and Crossrail combined.

Thameslink
- 242.6m trainset (12 x 20m)
- 160 km/h max speed
- 24 trains per hour frequency
- 700 km route length

Crossrail
- 200m trainset (9 x 22m - though can be extended in future)
- 145 km/h max speed
- 24 trains per hour frequency
- 118 km route length

I wouldn't be so sure. It has a much bigger catchment zone. They've built that capacity for a reason.

Post Thameslink Program services will run from the existing destinations (Brighton, Bedford, Sutton Loop) as well as fully taking over the shared SouthEastern services (Maidstone, Sevenoaks) as well as using the new canal tunnels to take over Great Northern services (Cambridge, Peterborough) whereas Crossrail will only have three main branches (Reading, Shenfield, Abbey Wood) so will have a smaller catchment area. Crossrail will have 24 9 car trains per hour whereas Thameslink will be a mixture of 8 and 12 car trains per hours (55 12 car 700s have been ordered, 60 8 car 700s ordered).

There was a possibility of Crossrail and Thameslink using the same rolling stock. (Not happening now - the Thameslink contract was awarded to Siemens, Crossrail to Bombardier.) Thameslink was to have 12-car trains and Crossrail 10-car with the possibility of extending them to 12-car trains in the future. However the Crossrail cars are longer than on the Thameslink trainsets, so the new 9x cars = the 10x cars of the original specs. But can anyone confirm if Crossrail still envisions extending trains in future? Have they built long enough platforms, etc?
