Linking Chiltern To Crossrail

In the November 2016 Edition of Modern Railways, there is an interview with Dave Penney of Chiltern Railways, as the company is opening their service to Oxford station on the twelve of December.

In Connecting To Crossrail, this is a summary of what is said or implied.

  • Chiltern could get a couple of platforms at Old Oak Common station, sandwiched between the Crossrail platforms.
  • Access to Northolt Junction is possible, to allow services to connect to the Chiltern Main Line using the Acton To Northolt Line.
  • Marylebone is almost at capacity.
  • Old Oak Common would give Chiltern a second London terminus and access to Crossrail.
  • Two trains per hour (tph) could start from Old Oak Common.
  • Aylesbury and High Wycombe could get access to Crossrail.

Chiltern would also get access to all the services calling at Old Oak Common.

I think it is an exciting concept.
