In Search of Purple

In Search of Purple

At Custom House, the DLR station has been closed for most of 2017, whilst the Crossrail station is being built, and finally the DLR side opened back up again this week, and with it came rumours that a purple 'Elizabeth Line' roundel was now visible ... Music by Joakim Karud http://youtube.com/joakimkarud If you've made it this far in the description, well done! Why not write a sensible comment, followed immediately by your best Homer "Mmm, purple" impression. (Which by the way, is the thing you must now forever say whenever anyone mentions Crossrail. Ok?)

Don't call Crossrail the Elizabeth Line

Don't call Crossrail the Elizabeth Line

My reasoning on why I'm against renaming London's newest railway that we already known as "Crossrail" to the 'Elizabeth Line'. Links to things as mentioned: The Cross London Report from 1980 (I couldn't find the 1974 one): http://www.railwaysarchive.co.uk/documents/BR_CrossLondonRailLink1980.pdf The Independent in this online article, "There's going to be a new tube line": http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/quiz-can-you-name-the-london-underground-line-by-its-colour--W1QWmgTOCl The FishbowlNY article that refers to Crossrail as "London's new tube line": http://www.adweek.com/fishbowlny/elizabeth-line-conde-nast/368195 IconRelocation refer to it as: "London's new tube line": http://www.iconrelocation.com/news/31-03-2016/london%E2%80%99s-new-tube-line-unveiled-as-the-elizabeth-line/ Toluna.com, "New tube line to be named Elizabeth Line": https://uk.toluna.com/opinions/2401036/New-tube-line-to-be-named-the-ELIZABETH-LINE-could-you-name

TfL Rail Paddington to Heathrow

TfL Rail Paddington to Heathrow

With a new tube map for May 2018, TfL Rail services now run between Paddington through Hayes and Harlington, and down to Heathrow. We went to catch the first ever 'purple' train (Class 345) in passenger service, and try to get our heads around the service pattern... TO SUMMARISE! BEFORE ... - Heathrow Express (4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - Heathrow Connect, USED to run to Terminal 2&3, and then also (if you stayed on) to T5 as well - There was a Heathrow Express shuttle every 15 minutes between T2&3 and T4. AFTER ... - Heathrow Express - UNCHANGED - 4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - TfL Rail, two trains per hour (New Class 345) only as far as Hayes & Harlington - Old 'Connect' trains (now with TfL Rail badge on them) every half an hour, all the way to T2&3, and then T4. - TfL Rail shuttle every half an hour between T4 and T2&3, meaning that there is a train every 15 minutes from T4 FUTURE ... - Crossrail/Elizabeth Line (New Class 345 purple trains) will run 6 trains an hour to T2&3, four with then go to T4, two will go to T5. - Heathrow Express remains unchanged... for now. Clear as mud? Excellent.

Tottenham Court Road Open Day

Tottenham Court Road Open Day

Crossrail held another (and their final!) open day for one of their new build stations that will start running #PurpleTrains (Elizabeth Line) from December of 2018. I asked my friend/colleague David along to take some photos, and we discover just how long the platforms are, and that therefore it REALLY matters which end of a train/the platforms you exit from depending on where you want to be on the street. note - There are NO MORE Crossrail events! Paddington, Bond Street, Moorgate/Liverpool Street and Woolwich are not having open days. David's full set of photos are on Flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/davekirwin/sets/72157625886836856 Music by Joakim Karud http://youtube.com/joakimkarud
