Is This Normal Behaviour Of Lizzie Line Passengers?

Suppose I’m using the Lizzie Line to go between Moorgate and Brentwood, I might get on the first train, if the one I need is not the first.

I will then change to the train I need at an intermediate station.

It’s just that the seats in the trains are more comfortable than those on the stations. My journey time will be the same, but my bottom will be pleased!

These are typical hard steel station seats.

And these are upholstered ones on a train.

In today’s weather the trains were also a bit warmer!

Do other passengers do this?

  1. I don’t live in London, but when travelling by train or tram or sometimes bus I will board anything that takes me closer to my destination without jeopardising whether I can catch the service I want. Where there is a network then your chances of catching a service sooner may actually increase – e.g. in south London at Clapham Junction, London Bridge or Croydon.

  2. On the Lizzie Line, there are also some stations, that are good pit stops.

    At Stratford, it’s less than 200 metres to one of the biggest M & S stores in London.

    The Moorgate end of Liverpool Street has everything between fast food up to real ale pubs and upmarket restaurants.

    At Bond Street, two of London’s finest garden squares; Hanover and Grosvenor are close to the station entrances.
