Fact Or Fiction On The Gospel Oak To Barking Line

I just took a short ride between Harringay Green Lanes and Gospel Oak stations.

At Harringay Green Lanes station, this was shown on the station display.

Saturday 16th to Sunday 22nd trains will be 30 minute intervals.

At Gospel  Oak station, this was shown on the station display.

Saturday 16th to Sunday 22nd trains will be 30 minute intervals.

I was also given a leaflet, which said.

Trains will run about every 30 minutes on weekdays, calling at all stations.

It also said that there will be service changes at weekend and on public holidays.

So what does the National Rail on-line timetable say?

  • Monday, March 18th – 2 trains per hour (tph)
  • Saturday, March 23rd – 4 tph
  • Sunday, March 24th – 4 tph
  • Monday, March 25th – 4 tph

I don’t believe it!

For four tph, that means they have to find three extra trains. Are they Class 710 trains or have they borrowed some surplus Pacers from Northern?
