Jon - a poll like this really isn't going to achieve a worthwhile result. The numbers voting will be too small.

ELL traffic surveys indicate that approximately one third of existing passengers will use the ELL; the remainder will continue to use Southern services.

These findings correspond exactly with an extensive survey carried out by the FH Society about one year ago.

However, you should not deduce from these figures that the ELL will therefore be relatively uncrowded. ELL surveys also indicate that the ELL line will initially attract about 35 % extra new passengers (over and above those already using our local stations). You should also note that each ELL train carriage is designed to take a full load of around 165 passengers. With only 20 seats in each carriage - the trains are designed so that 80% of passengers stand - the chances of getting a seat during busy periods by the time ELL trains reach FH, is practically nil.

If you are looking to travel in relatively uncrowded and relatively comfortable trains the conclusion is clear - we need to hold on to our existing trains to and from LB.
