I need District/Circle running the other way, Edgware Rd towards Earls Court. If they're not, I'm FUBAR!

Hmmm I need both directions, assuming that Peter means there are additional trains running through to Baker Street rather than Edgware Road terminating??

The disruption is that trains aren't running beyond Edgware Road towards Hammersmith. The conjecture is that it will temporarily return to running as a true circle.

Assuming Journey Planner is correct there will be

6tph District Wimbledon - Edgware Road
6tph Circle Line (running as a true circle in both directions)
6tph H&C Edgware Road - Barking

If only I could instill the levels of planning and cross-team co-ordination that I see on the forum, at work.

It would make life so much easier!

I believe that The Sex Pistols contested that word as used in their infamous album and won the court case :P
