This August bank holiday weekend the service will only operate between Gospel Oak and South Tottenham. To get further east, walk to Seven Sisters, take the Victoria Line to Walthamstow Central and then Overground replacement bus T, which runs every 20 minutes to Barking, although the nearest it goes to Leytonstone High Road is Harrow Green. Simples!
Other than that, not much to report, the rolling stock shortage continues, intending passengers should always plan for cancellations, extended intervals in service and during Monday to Friday peak periods, extreme overcrowding.
TfL have just re-engaged with us for the first time since late May and we are hopeful of a meeting with them to discuss improving the reliability of at least the morning Monday - Friday peak service up to 30 November. At the moment, no one has any sure idea of what happens after 30 November, when the remaning seven diesel trains transfer to West Midlands Trains, so it is impossible to plan for it!
Glenn Wallis, Secretary, Barking - Gospel Oak Rail User Group,
Afraid I cannot offer any improvements in the next month, and only then if we can put enough pressure on TfL to do something.
