Folks, I trust you're all aware of the shutdowns and restricted timetable for the Wombles Line over the next two weekends and next Monday/Tuesday...?

Sat and Sun, there's a normal Southern service. So there's 4 trains per hour to London Bridge for changing onto the Jubilee line.

Mon and Tues, the Overground terminates at Shadwell. So travel to Canada Water is good.

BTW - the recent tube strike made it clear the Overground is popular because of the convenient interchange at Canada Water. On that day, the carriages were 90% empty. Everyone must have piled onto the Southern trains for London Bridge.

I use the Overground to Canada Water because there is only one flight of stairs down to the Jubilee line. If I go to London Bridge, there is a long walk followed by two long flights of stairs down.

You may need to all count your blessings as they were at one point - planning to close the FH line on overground all next week plus the one that goes from Clapham Junction through Canada Water

They also promised us 4 trains an hour from all points on the Overground to Shadwell on the TFL mailout and that turned out not to be true. Frustrating especially after I had made alternative travel plans to avoid the crush.

Hi, I'm a bit confused about this weekend. Are there overground trains from Forest Hill on Sunday to Canada Water?

Last Sunday I'm pretty sure I had to take Southern into London Bridge as no overground was running.

Thanks.
