A Trip Along The Central Line – 26th January 2023

Today, I took a trip on the Central Line from Leyton station in the East to Ealing Broadway station in the West.

The trip was about eleven this morning and one aim was to assess how busy the line was.

For much of the journey between Leyton and Marble Arch, the train had about half the seats taken, but by the time we got to Ealing Broadway, there were only two of us in my carriage.

After arriving, I had a short chat with the cheery Scots lassie, who had driven us across London.

  • She said, that passenger levels had held up on the Central Line, despite the competition from the Elizabeth Line.
  • But she also said that large numbers of passengers transfer from the Elizabeth Line to the Central Line at Stratford in the Morning Peak.
  • She didn’t say, but there is probably an opposite change in the Evening Peak.

With the exception of a couple of ladies with babies in buggies, most passengers were not travelling with any heavy luggage.
