New Cross Gate station's East London Line experience

For those in need of another East London Line fix as we count down to the big day, London Reconnections has got some shots of how New Cross Gate is shaping up. Squint down the track and it's almost as if you can imagine your homeward bound journey.

Thanks to the readers who posted the link.

Looking good. As posters on that blog have said, I wonder when/if NXG and all stations south will get the full London Overground refurbishment, with new signage (rather than stickers over the old ones) and a full repaint? Also, I'm looking forward to riding the log flume section.

Danja said...

I get the feeling they've done as much refurb as they intend to at NXG, apart from maybe some signs.

A comment on that link had a bit more info on when services will start:

April 4th is the 'optimistic' date for a preview service on the TfL run section only. May 23rd is the date for the full timetable, as certain Southern services have to be altered to make room on the external network, and this can only practically be done at the national timetable change.

Nick my son, can we have a House Prices in the Brox Watch thread to monitor asset inflation (or indifference) as the new rolling stock trundles into town?

ALERT TROLL... when not getting enough attention, derail a thread to a different topic...

Brockley Nick said...

@Hugh - and how do you envisage that would work?

Hugh said...

Nick, perhaps a collection of links to articles with titles like Let's Move To ... the Brox.

Thought you were leaving 'the Brox', Hugh? Can't get an offer on your pad?

Danja said...

Memory failure there, Nick. I didn't recall the precision on the dates.

I really wish they'd kept the old East London Line name rather than rename it the Overland - yes I know it will eventually connect up to North London but still. Plus presumably it means no stand alone roundels.

I'm already imagining conversations-
'Just get the tube down'
'Oh which line is it?'
'The Overground'
'Huh, you want me to get the Underground to the Overground, I thought you were on the Underground network?'
'Doesn't matter, just get the orange one.'

Hugh said...

Anon, plenty of offers. Question is whether to keep it as a BTL.

Funds allow that, you see.

Hugh said...

5 quid says it will become known as the Womble Line.

stupid question said...

will you be able to get from brockley to north london (changing at canada water or whitechapel) with just one fare? as opposed to changing at london bridge and paying two fares on your oyster?

thank you

TM said...

New train at New Cross again today.
Will try and get a photo next time I see it.

Brockley Nick said...

@sq - yes, you will. One tube fare.
