There will be a more frequent and earlier trains on parts of the London Overground from next week.

On the Overground from Richmond and Clapham Junction to Stratford will see train frequency increase from four trains per hour to five per hour. As the two lines from Richmond and Clapham Juntion merge at Willesden Junction, that means they will be providing a more frequent ten train per hour service on the busiest part of the route between Willesden Junction and Stratford.

The introduction of the additional trains will also enable a more even service to operate on both branches throughout the day.  They will also help ensure services can run on the whole of the route to Richmond.

There will also be two additional early morning services on the Gospel Oak to Barking route. TfL said that the two new services, that will depart Barking at 05:39 and 05:54, will run on weekdays only are necessary to meet growing customer numbers.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Nice for those up in the grim north.

    TfL’s announcements at train stations for this better service are really cheesy however. They’re done in a ‘movie trailer’ style…

    By the Time Bsrking Roverside Opens m, there will need to be 2 Trains an Hour from Barking, possibly to Kentish Town, to ensure that people at Barking and Woodgrange Park can board. It’s terminus can be incorporated into the Kentish Town Plan.

    One wonders , if allowance has been made for the neighbouring Site of the new London Markets Complex at Barking Reach.

    The Victoria Line is straining at the Seams and a new Entrance and connection between the Mall ( Erskine Road End), Walthamstow Central and Walthamstow Queens Road is needed.

    Crossrail’s Overrun, means Local Authorities and Developers will need to be coaxed to foot the Bill

    Will Transport for London ever eradicate London Overground Syndrome?

    I define it like this.

    This benign disease, which is probably a modern version of the Victorian railway mania, was first identified in East London in 2011, when it was found that the newly-refurbished East London Line and North London Line were inadequate due to high passenger satisfaction and much increased usage. It has now spread across other parts of the capital, despite various eradication programs.

    It keeps appearing across the UK and I suspect it happens in other countries too!

    Great news for North London yet again, but when are we to get a more frequent service on the Dalston to Clapham Juncion branch? If two per hour went into Victoria instead it would be even better, giving us 4tph from Peckham Rye.
