Oyster for Brockley in January?

Mainline train stations around London are set to introduce Oyster card readers as early as January, Canary Wharf newspaper The Wharf reports.

The card readers have been installed at Brockley Station for some months now, awaiting a co-ordinated launch across the network.

A spokesman for Southeastern Trains told The Wharf: 'It's on stream for January 2010. We're up to date with the installation of software. There's a bit of fine tuning involved, but we've got the facilities at most stations to top up Oyster cards for journeys.
'It's going to happen all in one go. It wouldn't work otherwise.'
