CROSSRAIL DOCUMENTARY: THE FIFTEEN BILLION POUND RAILWAY

The BBC produced a three-part documentary series which took the public behind the scenes of Europe’s largest infrastructure project as it constructs a new rail line through the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities.



BBC 2’s The Fifteen Billion Pound Railway first aired in summer 2014 and followed the construction of the new train tunnels and stations under London.

The series has been released on DVD. It can be ordered via the London Transport Museum shop and Amazon.

For more information about The Fifteen Billion Pound Railway visit the BBC website.

Contactless payments and Oyster extended to Dartford
04 September 2015

Thousands of rail passengers are set for cheaper fares and more convenient journeys from Sunday 6 September as acceptance of contactless payments and Oyster is extended to pay as you go travel on Southeastern services to and from Dartford station.

The move is part of Transport for London's (TfL's) work to make life easier for customers, and will mean Dartford station moves into Zone 8, with customers able to use pay as you go and Zone 1-8 Travelcard season tickets. Customers using contactless payments to travel will pay the same fare as Oyster and, whether using Oyster or contactless payments, customers will make significant financial savings.

A standard anytime single fare for travel to Dartford is currently £8.40, but from Sunday the new pay as you go contactless payment or Oyster single fare will be £7.00 in the peak (saving £1.40) and £4.00 off peak (saving £4.40)

Crossrail EMU bodyshell on test
10 Sep 2015



UK: A test bodyshell for the Class 345 electric multiple-units ordered for London’s Crossrail project has been assembled at Bombardier Transportation’s Derby plant, where it is being used to refine the design and manufacturing techniques ahead of full production of the 594 cars for 66 nine-car trainsets.

'This assembled body shell, which has progressed rapidly from a blank piece of paper through to build and test, is the first off the production line for the Crossrail project’, said Bombardier's Project Director Joe Bednall. ‘It will first go to be tested, to validate the bodyshell design, before being painted and re-assembled to form the client's cab and saloon mock up. The on-time completion of this new lightweight body shell design marks an important milestone in the ongoing successful delivery of the Crossrail project'

Anyone know when the Class 700's will make it as far as Hornsey Depot? I know that they are due to start being brought into service on the KX-Cambridge route from 2016, in advance of the St Pancras tunnels being opened to passengers in 2018, so presumably it must be soon. Be great to get a picture of the first 700 to go through that tunnel, even if it has no passengers!
