Later trains for the East London Line? [UPDATED]

The Forest Hill Society has a great report from a recent meeting with the East London Line's operating company, LOROL.

One bit of good news is that BC reader Monkeyboy's one-man campaign to lobby LOROL to extend the line's operating hours might be a goer. They report:

The current timetable shows that while the last Southern train will now leave London Bridge at 0036 instead of 0026 (Mon-Fri), the last train from Canada Water will be at 0017.

LOROL pointed out that their services would be in addition to the 4tph that Southern currently run. They also stated that they would like to run later services, but would not do so until the Engineering and Maintenance strategy had bedded in. The earliest that they would expect a change was May 2011.

UPDATE: To clear up any confusion, there is an ELL train running after midnight, departing for Brockley at 0017 from Canada Water, but only on Friday nights.

Thanks to The Forest Hill Society for their work.
