The only exception is the 05.50 service to London Cannon Street which is very popular with early morning commuters. This train is usually a Class 375, formed of 8 coaches. All of the Dover bound trains stop at Canterbury East and later terminate at Dover Priory. A train journey from Selling to Canterbury East takes only 8 mins. The trains that stop at Selling station are almost always formed of 4 coaches. This is a issue, particularly for the busy rush hour trains to Canterbury East, which are usually packed, with many many customers resorting to standing in the door ways of the train. Selling is occasionally given longer trains, these are a maximum of 6 coaches, a class 465/6 and are mostly used during off-peak times. The Eurostar train has passed through Selling in the past as part of a diversion.
