Thameslink was one of the last parts of the former British Rail to be privatised.

In 1994, Network SouthEast was divided into eleven separate companies, each of which would later be individually privatised. At this time, Thameslink was rebranded. Go-via was awarded the Thameslink franchise in 1997.
