East London Line operating...sort of!

Check Transport for London for further details...

Dalston Junction - New Cross and New Cross Gate, 27 April 2010
This section of the line has now opened with a limited preview service running Monday to Fridays between 07:00 and 20:00 only. It will build up towards a full timetable by 23 May 2010.

At the moment trains run every seven to eight minutes, with half the trains going Dalston Junction to New Cross, and half the trains going Dalston Junction to New Cross Gate.

Dalston Junction - New Cross/Crystal Palace and West Croydon
The full line will open on 23 May 2010. Trains will run every 15 minutes on each of the three branches, meaning there are trains every five minutes between Dalston Junction and Surrey Quays and trains every seven to eight minutes between Surrey Quays and Sydenham.

They're all pretty cockahoop over at Brockley Central. They didn't have the 47 stopping outside their door like we have – but that ride is just too long. After much deprivation we now have the choice again about how we cross the river. Hurrah! (Although other parts of South London are just as far away as ever...)
