I would have thought that, as we're not going for a record attempt, it would be perfectly reasonable to treat the affected stations as a passthrough. Geoff?

Ruislip Manor westbound - all day
Eastcote - after 2100
Hounslow Central - after 2200.
All of these count as a passthrough if you pass-through them when they are closed - same rules as Queensway. Why? Because it is a temporary change to the timetable NOT a permanent one. This includes stations that are only closed one way - you don't have to visit the station in the direction that it is open.

The situation where pass throughs do not count is Cannon Street after 2100 - because no trains are timetabled to stop there on the permanant timetable. On tube relief though, a blind eye will be turned if you pass through Cannon Street on say, the last train to Upminster.
Tube Forum administrator. I look after the database to keep this place running smoothly.

It probably won't help on the day, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. ETA is now available for the Jubilee, Bakerloo, Northern, and Victoria Lines. As before it's available on WAP, and for browser equiped PDAs, for when you are on the move.

The address for the normal version is http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tube/travelinfo/eta/

I certainly expect to use ETA for the Victoria Line, and it might come in handy at Stratford and Stanmore. I guess it *might* come in handy at Kenton, but...

Oh, and Morden is a critical change via the outdoors as well, so...

Another warning for you all. There will be roadworks, resurfacing so quite major, next Thursday in Wimbledon Village, which will affect buses 93 & 493, two of the routes that you may be thinking of using for the conenction between Wimbledon and Morden.

Any problems with Tramlink as a result?

(Tramlink double-plus good)

I'm certainly intending on doing the tram -- itl'll give me Tube, Walk, Tram, Bus and 2xTrain as my means of getting around and that's pretty much everything we're allowed to use.

Whats wrong with walking that connection. I'm the most unfit person I know and have a bone condition in my leg but I can still walk that in 15 minutes! Come on people! Next you'll suggest taking a bus from Kenton to Northwick Park!

The tram to Morden Road is only every 10 minutes and even when you get there it is still at least 5 minutes walk away from Morden LU.

Remember those shirts from cafe press? The one I ordered from Geoff's design came in today. What's up with that? I thought they weren't going to let us have that logo?
