MTR hoping to operate more off peak services through core section of crossrail and it's suburban branches, current peak time operations planned @24tph.
Full crossrail service likely to be in operation by Jan 2020.

More like the new Museum of London will go into the siding space underneath and put glass rather than brick up as a barrier. Cool though.

First Class 345 EMU enters passenger service in London
22 Jun 2017



UK: The first of 66 Class 345 electric multiple-units for London’s future Elizabeth Line entered passenger service on June 22.

TfL Rail is initially operating one off-peak return trip per day between Liverpool Street and Shenfield using a Class 345. Transport for London expects a further 10 of the EMUs to be in service by the autumn

I am glad the Class345 is here. I know the roll out for more trains will take a while but can't wait to hop on and see how it's like. I am in love with the Class 700 at the moment so will this beat that?

My first experience ever onboard a Class 345 train on its second day in operation!



Wow, what can I say! I was finally able to take a ride on one of these stunning Class 345 trains from Liverpool Street to Shenfield and back, which I have been raring to get on for ages! The interior of the train is absolutely amazing, and I love the moquette and every single detail put into the design of these trains, the air conditioning system helps to keep temperatures cool whilst everyone boils outside, and the new voice announcements are clear and are voiced by the voice of London Buses and London Overground, Emma Hignett! I got some great shots which I will put in a separate video to show you all, and apologies for the long wait to release this video - a 55 min 720p video instead of the usual 1080p, due to limitations with size.

However, I hope you enjoy the video and are able to try out these trains for yourself some time soon. Cheerio!

Heathrow Express Braces for Crossrail to End Airport Monopoly

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...rport-monopoly

Quote:
Heathrow Express, which runs the only surface rail link to Europe’s busiest airport, pledged to carry on growing even as it braces for the end of its 19-year monopoly on the route when Crossrail Ltd. commences operations next year.

The company will seek to publicize its shorter journey time from London’s Paddington station and emphasize that travelers through Heathrow won’t have to share its trains with commuters, as they will on Crossrail, Managing Director Fraser Brown said in an interview.

The rollout of Crossrail services from the airport to central London and the City financial district will present Heathrow Express with the biggest challenge in its history.

Its own trains terminate at Paddington in the west of the U.K. capital, so travelers need to switch to the subway or catch a cab to continue their journey, something that won’t be necessary on Crossrail.

do you suspect they will be done quickly? I can't find any reason for them attracting a significant number of passengers after the Crosslink opens. The "emphasize that travelers through Heathrow won’t have to share its trains with commuters" does not convince me at all.

I think many travelers will still take it, not knowing that there's the Crosslink alternative. Just as many people don't know there's Heathrow Connect for a much cheaper price and only about 10 minutes longer journey time.

£20.70 vs £42.00

At Terminals 2,3/Central (whatever they call it), but that's it.

The 2tph Heathrow Connect currently terminates there, with a 4tph shuttle to T4 (as well as 4tph HEx between Paddington and T5). From May 2018 that becomes a 4tph TfL Rail service from T4 to Paddington. From Dec 2019, that becomes Elizabeth line services through to Abbey Wood.

T5 will continue to be solely served by Heathrow Express.

London Overground to run a 24-hour service just like the Night Tube

The London Mayor confirmed a 24-hour service would run between New Cross Gate and Dalston Junction on the East London line from December this year.

The route will eventually be extended to Highbury & Islington in 2018.

Mayor Sadiq Khan, said: ‘Our Night Tube services have been a real success right across the capital, so I’m delighted to announce that we’ll be bringing the Night Overground to the East London line later this year.
