I was on the Met line platforms at moorgate for the first time in about 5
years today. The entire old Thameslink platform has been partitioned off. Is
this to do with crossrail or is something else going on in there?
Turning the old CWL into LU sidings.
Is it nothing to do with the new trains that are due in September? I have no idea!
They use a completely different set of (subterranean) platforms.
Indeed so. The Elizabeth line Moorgate and Liverpool St station entrances
share one pair of much longer, deeper platforms to the southeast of the old
Are trains for those due in September too?
No, nothing happens in September; I don't know where that date came from.
That part of the Elizabeth line is due to open in December (which could
slip, though they're trying very hard to keep to it), with 9-car class 345
trains from Abbey Wood to Paddington (Low level).
The outer TfL Rail sections should be re-branded on the same date, but the
three services will remain separate at that stage.
