Does anyone know how accurate this site is and how it compares to reality? Does anyone use this for their route planning? As one example, West Ruislip to Woodford via Hainault, I've used TP to calculate it as 99 minutes.
Current best: 19:51:10 (2014). Hopefully that will be broken in 2018 :-)

Lets just say the quickest way from Elmers End to Lewisham is not via Wimbledon.

It doesn't know the service patterns so for something like Richmond - Edgware Road it shows it as a direct train.

Or even direction... Ealing Broadway to West Ruislip showed as direct. Same for Edgware to Mill Hill East.

I bit of wishful thinking there...sadly the Northern Heights project that would have made a link between these two by Tube was abandoned.
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!
