Engineering works during the half term break have been postponed, so there is a Southern service to London Bridge and Victoria during the week.

Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th February.

Forest Hill/Honor Oak Park: Normal service on London Overground all weekend. Southern will operate on Saturday, but there is no service to London Bridge and Victoria on Sunday.

Catford Bridge/Lower Sydenham: Normal service.

Crofton Park/Catford: Normal service with the exception of Sunday early morning services that usually go to Victoria will run to Blackfriars.

Advance warning of industrial action on London Overground next Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th February by members of the RMT.

London Overground plan a limited service on those days with closures of certain stations closed in the core section.

Stations closed will be Haggerston, Hoxton, Rotherhithe, Shadwell, Shoreditch High Street and Wapping. with trains not stopping at those stations.

Surrey Quays, Canada Water, Whitechapel, Dalston Junction, Canonbury and Highbury & Islington will remain open along with all our stations operated by London Overground in South London that are above ground.

Timetables haven't been updated yet, but the plan is to operate the East London Line from around 0800 to 1800. Southern will operate all day as usual.

TfL in an email have suggested the following for stations managed by London Overground that are served by National Rail services, i.e. Southern.

Quote:
If using national rail services from stations also served by London Overground, you are advised to check before you travel, as some trains may not be able to run as expected.


They also mention that some stations will be open, but unstaffed.

I think this may affect Norwood Junction and West Croydon where dispatchers are required for some services. During one recent strike by Southern, Norwood Junction closed at 2200 despite being managed by London Overground.

Personally I think our stations will open, but with the gates open, while Penge West and Anerley don't have gates, just the Oyster readers.

am I correct in my understanding that on strike days the earliest Overground train is after 8am and latest 6pm?

The strike timetable still hasn't been published yet, but I expect it to be similar to what it was like when the Overground was last on strike which is four trains per hour (2 to Crystal Palace/2 to West Croydon) with the last train from Whitechapel and Canada Water before 6pm.

Once it's published, I'll publish first and last train times. I'd expect it to be online by Friday.

Southern helping out today by having 4 coach trains which is not helpful when they are the only trains into London. But as they are not within London Transport I guess they don't have to co-operate re length of trains when Overground is cut.

I guess it won't change unless/until Southern services within Zones 1-4 become part of London Transport (if then!!)

The London Overground strikes are still on for next Monday and Tuesday 4th and 5th March.

Hopefully TfL will make an improved offer, so that the strikes will be suspended again.

If not, I hope to have more information by the weekend.

We have NO trains at all this weekend from Forest Hill & Honor Oak Park.

In other news, RMT members have accepted a pay deal from Arriva Rail London who operate London Overground on behalf of Transport for London, so the dispute is resolved.
