wow didn't realise it was that sparse on some lines
Edgware Rd to Earls Court every 15 minutes and no direct service to
Gloucester Road (change at EC)
Last day of the Circle was 20th March. On 18th, 19th, and 20th it was
doing the old circuit, with no trains to Hammersmith (the H&C was
handling that; 15 minute service on each).
I get why the circle is not running
but I don't get the sparse service on the western part
there are 8 trains an hour from Wimbledon, terminating at Earls Court.
they presumably have to shunt forwards, driver change end and shunt back to
the other island platform for the return journey
there are 4 trains per hour Edgware Rd to EC, having to do the same shunt in
the opposite direction
wouldn't it just be simpler running the normal Wimbleware service 8 time an
Or perhaps all the services terminate in the wrong platform so that they are
ready to return, is that possible at EC?
