How to get a seat at Brockley Station

What are hyperlocal blogs for if not to document the arrival of new train platform shelters? The extended platforms at Brockley Station, built for ten carriage trains, are now so long, that they need to offer a second place to huddle, both north and south-bound.

The new ticket barriers on the east side are due to be completed next week but may require another week before they become operational.

Lady Progress marches her way into Brockley.

Lovely, one of those thin metal bars where you never quite feel like you're not sliding off it.

I'll be moving to Brockley soon. Just wanted to know: is it ever possible to get *on* the direct trains into Victoria in the morning?

Yes, you're guaranteed to get a seat on the trains heading in that direction.

I assume you're talking about the stopping service through south London? In which case it's always possible to get *on* and get a seat as its generally going against the commuter flow so soon after London Bridge.

Gets a bit packed a few stops down the line when it becomes the quickest (only) route into central London.

Are there plans to increase ELL frequency any time soon? Yes I know ELL is outdated but I like it.
