Met Line Closure

Post by hopeful traveller » 09 Jun 2016, 00:20

You should by now be aware that the Met Line is closing between Wembley Park and Aldgate after 2200 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. So imagine my confusion when I board a train at Finchley Road at 2216 yesterday. After I get off at Ruislip Manor (for a cheap kebab) I ask the station people, and they can't give me exact timing for last trains, except for the last Southbound train direct to Central London.

Answers on a postcard please. Or, alternatively, the precise times of the last trains from Aldgate, Liverpool Street, etc.?

Last northbound through trains:

#470 2213 Baker Street- Watford
#467 2217 Aldgate- Amersham (2235 ex Baker Street)
#423 2222 Aldgate- Uxbridge (2240 ex Baker Street)
#462 2232 Aldgate- Chesham (2250 ex Baker Street)

After #462 has departed, there are no more through trains from Baker Street. Amersham, Chesham and Uxbridge trains re-start at Wembley Park, Watford (Met) trains re-start at H-o-t-H

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

Presumably these are temporary closures for engineering work?

Depends on your definition of temporary. The southern end of the Met is closing early for the next 2 years though!

Significant enough to warrant the publishing of 2 working tt's, the main one and the supplement for the weekdays when services stop early.
