What went wrong with the new Thameslink...
A sorry tale with many deserving of blame, and no heroes: https://www.londonreconnections.com/2018/holy-grails-and-thameslink-fails-part-2-the-plan-that-went-wrong/ One thing I hadn't appreciated was how much of the plan depended on GBRf drivers, because GTR didn't have enough.

Elizabeth Line trains stored at OOC
Anyone travelling to and from Paddington on the GWR has probably noticed the growing number of Elizabeth Line trains parked in the OOC Depot sidings. But I had a closer look from a footbridge over the nearby canal: https://www.flickr.com/photos/recliner/albums/72157695029566492 The trains on view in the 33 stabling roads are the full 9-car length, and are identified as Elizabeth Line, not TfL...

Met line Kilburn crash
Found this old video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS3Ey20NymI I hope the S stock has better crash resistance than the A stock had. Its a bit of a mess for a 20mph collision IMO.

Chiswick Park Piccadilly line?
There's an article in the June Moder Railways about the new stock order for the Picc. It suggests that, at some point in the future, the Piccadilly will take over the Ealing Broadway branch from the District allowing more District trains to Richmond and Wimbledon. Where does that leave Chiswick Park? It only has platforms on what is, today, the Disctrict lines. And what about anyone...

Siemens wins giant LU Tube train order
https://www.railmagazine.com/news/network/siemens-wins-94-train-deep-tube-order Well, well, well: Siemens has sharpened its pencil and beaten the Bombardier-Hitachi consortium to this giant order, that should eventually replace all the trains on four LU tube lines, starting with the Piccadilly. I must admit that I thought Bombardier-Hitachi would be the favourite to win this biggest-ever LU...

Crossrail rolling stock

I see that along with the new timetables there is a new on-line map of London's rail and tube services at https://tfl.gov.uk/cdn/static/cms/documents/london-rail-and-tube-services-map.pdf Has anyone found a printed version available anywhere? Once upon a time they used to be obtainable from many stations under the title "London Connections". -- Clive Page

Oxford Court & Its Coganets
I was at Cannon St station a few days ago and I thought I'd pop into St Swithuns Gardens. Shut! Building work. Those gardens are in Oxford Court which is about the size of a penny-up piste. It is such a difference from Oxford Street, which is so huge. But what about central London versions of Oxford Avenue, Lane, Crescent,, Mews, Alley or Road?

New Moorgate class 717 unveiled
The new six-car trains are based on the TL 700s, but with cab-end doors, WiFi and power sockets, but no first class, toilets or tray tables. Siemens hasn't made Hitachi's mistake with the windscreens, which look almost flat. Despite the cab-end doors, the driver's position is surprisingly spacious, with an instrument panel that can swing aside if the door needs to be used. Service entry is in...

TfL Ticket Machines at NR Stations.
Ready for Crassrail (aka the Tin Lizzie Line) TfL have installed brand new ticket machines at Hayes. They have clearly labelled cash slots for coins and notes. They clearly advertise pre-paid ticket collections; and also Oyster top-ups. However amongst the confusion of signs and notices on the fascias they also display "No Oyster Top-ups", "Bank Cards Only", and pre-aid tickets cannot be issued....
