I just traveled on the route between Romford and Upminster, where London Overground will take over next week, and it is quite slow. It's a single track with only one train on the line so let's hope it travels faster.

We have more stops in zones 7, 8 and 9 on the map, and there's whatever Shenfield is (the same as Watford Junction, presumably).

I did see the London Overground Train for the Romford to Upminster route "parked up" at the Seven Kings depot but don't know how many carriages they will use. Let's just hop it travels a lot more faster than the one they have now. Plus the carriages for TfL Rail are slowly changing colour to White and Blue.

I pass London Bridge regularly by train on the active Southeastern platforms.

Impressive project given the constraint of having a busy station to work within.

Closing the gap at Vauxhall station
Thursday 28 May 2015



A new platform surface has reduced the step for passengers and increased safety at one of London’s busiest – and most historic - stations.

Rumour has it that the South West Trains station of Vauxhall once so impressed the Russian Tsar, on a visit in the 1840s, that it actually gave its name to the Russian word for ‘large station’ (vokzal). That may or may not be true, but recent investment by the Network Rail / South West Trains Alliance has given the 167-year-old station a fresh look on platforms 7 and 8.

Despite its low profile, the station provides an interchange with the Victoria Line and buses, leaving it as the country’s 18th busiest station – and London’s 14th - with 20m passengers a year
