Metropolitan Line North Curve

Post by Tube Geek » 07 Jun 2016, 16:38

Hi

Does anyone know where I can find a timetable for the North Curve (Croxley-Rickmansworth direct)? I have search a bit on Google, but can't find anything!

Thanks!

A while ago there were direct trains built into the everyday timetable. At the moment I don't think there are though - if you want one you have to rely on repair work putting trains from the south side out of action.

Yep, they're still there. They even have a special code.

So it doesn't actually work with this route, but might another :(

Still, thanks!

Ah my mistake, they weren't there last time I looked, which admittedly was quite a while ago.

How on Earth do they classify the WSM, Frome and Westbury avoiders as "ususual" lines? Loads of trains take those routes every day.

The WSM line is definitely not unusual! I've been on it loads of times!
