The closure has long been expected, all that was missing was the date – which has now been confirmed as from Saturday 15th January until mid-May 2022. During the closure, trains will not run between Kennington and Moorgate, and there will also be a reduced service between Camden Town and Moorgate.

I think it’s worth waiting for as by May T4 could well be open. When the bank branch reopens I think they are also increasing the service level to Battersea. For the sake of waiting another couple of months for my first FNC I would want all 272 stations.

TfL have issued a tender for a temporary route 733 starting on the 15th January 2022 which will operate between Oval and Moorgate during the Northern Line closure, effectively making this the dedicated rail replacement bus.

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

But I would doubt that unless TfL officially denote it as a Rail Replacement Bus that Guinness World Records would accept it, instead viewing it as "just another bus"...

Probably the case. A bus down to Heathrow T4 currently wouldn't count as a replacement bus
