Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Attached is the latest BGORUG Bulletin (11 January) which should be on our website in a few days.

  • Reopening on target
  • Still waiting at Blackhorse Road
  • BGORUG campaign for passenger refunds & compensation
  • Wanstead Park - alight here for Forest Gate
  • First of the new electric trains expected in London soon
  • Membership renewals
  • Meanwhile, the work goes on

The overhead line equipment (OHLE) between Gospel Oak and South Tottenham is now live (25,000v AC) and yesterday powered the first train to use them, LO's 378 211, on hire to Network Rail.

Arriva Rail London will be operating a 'ghost' service Sunday afternoon for driver refreshing prior to services recommencing on Monday. There are bound to be more Gospel Oak - South Tottenham electric test trains too.

Welcome to the first Electric Multiple Unit 378 211 to the Gospel Oak to Barking Line! After a long and arduous project we are now ready to test the new OLE (in part anyway). Still a few snags to overcome but it’s here and running on its own.


Proof that the new wires do work under Crouch Hill Bridge forgive the windscreen wipers

Fingers crossed for my next dentist appointment....that's near Blackhorse Rd.

Yay! Southend here we come.. And Kew in the other direction.

Oh and all those people who live in Barking and work at the Whittington will be happy.
