That looks like fun. One quibble - why didn't change at Blackhorse Road instead of Walthamstow Central?
Not a plus one :wink:

To use the OSI between Walthamstow Central on the Victoria line and Walthamstow Queen's Road on the Overground.

So it isn't an OSI at Blackhorse Road between Victoria line and Overground?

Edit: Doh, of course, you don't go through the barriers there. Sorry.

No, as Blackhorse Road only has one set of barriers for both modes, you can change between the Victoria Line and GOBLIN without passing through the barriers.

This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- sadly, not no more!
