The Gospel Oak To Barking Line Is Planned To Reopen On February 6th 2017

If you look at TfL’s excellent and very detailed Track Closures Six Months Look Ahead, it would appear that the Gospel Oak To Barking Line (GOBlin) will reopen on Monday, the sixth of February 2017.

After the fifth of February, there are no planned closures of the line, which could indicate, that TfL’s plan to return the Class 172 trains to the route is on track.

TfL have stated that there will be weekend closures to finish the electrification before new Class 710 trains are delivered in a couple of years.

So that looks like in fifteen weeks, there should be a restored passenger service on the line.

Why can’t Network Rail be as open and honest with plans as Transport for London?
