Mistake in latest Met Line printed timetable

Post by Nigel » 03 Jul 2013, 14:04

I've just started planning for the Full Network Race next month, and as usual I like to use the printed Met Line timetables to plan the NW corner, as I find it it easier to look at the possible options.

However, using the latest version (on-line copy at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/ ... -guide.pdf ) it shows the 0652 departure from Amersham being at Moor Park at 0705, which connects nicely with a Watford departure one minute later. However this is incorrect, as Journey Planner and the WTT show it due at 0707 1/2, and hence the connection is unlikely to be made unless the Watford train is late. The mistake is obvious when you notice that just for this one service Rickmansworth to Moor Park takes two minutes, whereas it's four or five for all the others.

I thought I had a nice fast start lined up. Ah well, back to the drawing board.
