33 minutes from Brockley to Highbury & Islington

The new East London Line timetable has been released, confirming that the last train home to New Cross Gate from Canada Water will leave at 00.31, offering a genuine after-hours option for the first time since the line opened in May.


The timetable also provides the first official information about travel times to Highbury & Islington when the service opens in May 2011. It will take an extra 2 minutes to reach Canonbury from Dalston Junction and a further 3 minutes from there to Highbury & Islington - meaning that a journey from Brockley to the northern end of the line will take 33 minutes.

With thanks to Monkeyboy.

Just noticed, before Lou jumps on my sunny but misread disposition, that the last train to brokers is 23:57. The 00:31 stops at NXG, still good though. Gives you a brisk walk to sober up before bed.

A direct train to the home of football. Excellent.

Dogging opportunities on Highbury Fields and back to Hilly Fields for the 'last knockings' start to reveal themselves

bit quicker than driving isn't it.

Is it? I reckon I could get there quicker at night if I floored it.

Yeah but you haven't got a car, remember?

Brilliant news.

The East London Line brings us genuine choice.

Choice as to which dodgy bit of London we'd like to go to to get stabbed - without having to change.

Not content with Penge and Dalston, Highbury's on the list too.

When the branch to Peckham opens we'll almost have the complete set - only Harlseden will be missing.

@Lou Baker

Please leave London and find a sleepy village in the middle of nowhere with no internet access so we never have to hear from you again.

Lou - exactly the same could be said for lewisham and Catford.

@anon 0813.

Not true. In Lewisham and Catford you're more likely to be shot than stabbed.

Garrrgh, what a bummer about no later service. Mind you, the ELL is always a complete shambles after about 10,30pm so I guess a later train wouldn't have worked most of the time anyway.

Lou - you're obviously one of those people who doesn't like trying new things. If you can get shot in Catford - why stick with that just because you know it. Try Islington for once and see what it's like being stabbed. If you don't like it you don't have to go again. Maybe, just maybe it will make you realise that there are other things you can do in other parts of London.

Yes it must be terrifying going round Highbury with all those million pound houses looking over your shoulder in case someone's about to press a cold hard 65 Sabatier Perrier in you...

Saturday and Monday arrive at Shadwell & Canada Water cira 11pm resectively to find service has been stopped due to a 'failed train'. The whole line closed because of 1 failed train.

Why can't they just tell the truth and say they closed early to allow their staff to get home?

One thing old BR used to do was never (except in extreme circumstances) to cancel the last train. If there were operating difficulties it was the earlier ones that were dropped.
