Default Stansted to Barking

Arriving at Stansted Airport, suppose I'll take the Stansted
Express/Skytrain to Liverpool Street Station.

To go to Barking, may I be dropped along the route or I must go first
at Liverpool Str Station, then from there take the tube?

For instance, dropping at Tottenham Hale allow me to reach Barking
easily?

Or exists a better alternative?

Tnx for your feedback

Tottenham Hale to Barking involves one stop on the victoria to blackhorse
road, then a train to barking. The easiest way is Train to Liverpool street
and then H&C to barking.

You could catch the National Express A9 coach to Stratford and then
local bus 238 or

http://www.nationalexpress.com/nxairport/stansted.cfm

http://www.busmap.org/tt/A09.pdf
http://www.busmap.org/tt/238.pdf

the same coach to Stratford then Jubilee Line to West Ham and then
District Line or H&C Line to Barking.

Or Train to Tottenham Hale then 123 bus to Ilford then bus 169, 179 or
369 to Barking. The 123 stops right outside Tottenham Hale station
(stop V on the map) in the little bus station area while it is a simple
change between buses in Ilford (get off at stop N) and get on at stop L.

http://www.busmap.org/tt/169.pdf

http://www.busmap.org/tt/369.pdf

All the buses are frequent and are only 1 per journey.

If you want to go on the Tube, then Liverpool Street is your best bet,
as it is on the Hammersmith and City Line, which will take you direct to
Barking. That would be the quickest way as far as I know.

I agree, I don't think there's anything to be gained by not going all
the way to London Liverpool St. Looking at my London Connections map
suggests there is a limited train (as opposed to London Underground)
service from Liverpool St direct to Barking; I imagine this is a
peak-hours-only service, so your best bet would probably be to take
the Hammersmith&City line as suggested.

connections doesn't it!

No, it's a very-late-night-only service.

The most irritating thing is that there is easily room to relocate the
Tottenham Hale WAGN platforms south of Ferry Road, in which case they would
stretch pretty much all the way to the Goblin Line where (I think) there is
room to build platforms. But since the WAGN platforms have recently had
shelters and escalators installed, I don't think they're going anywhere.

Default GOBLIN connections was Stansted to Barking

It's got a lot of 'near misses', though:

Upper Holloway - Archway
Harringay Green Lanes - Harringay
South Tottenham - Seven Sisters
Wathamstow Queens Road - Walthamstow Central
Wanstead Park - Forest Gate
Leytonstone High Road - Leytonstone
Woodgrange Park - Manor Park

All of those are a few hundred metres apart, which isn't that much of a
walk - probably less than the walks inside a larger tube station.

In fact, what is the longest interchange walk inside one station? I'd
guess it was Central to Circle at Bank. Or perhaps W&C to Circle.

Yes, it's C2C LTS line trains, which run to Fenchurch Street in the day,
but use Liverpool Street at night. LTUC did a report on the possibility of
using Fenchurch Street all the time ('Which Street for Southend?'), and it
has an absolutely priceless observation:

4.9 Staff views

4.9.1 Passenger trains are run for the benefit of their users, not of
their staff, and the views of operating staff were not sought in the
course of this survey. Nevertheless, it is worth recording that LTUC's
surveyors were approached spontaneously by a number of c2c's train staff
at Fenchurch Street and of other train companies' station staff at
Liverpool Street. The train staff all expressed a strong preference for
Fenchurch Street, which they saw as their home territory (with the staff
amenities they regularly used) and as a less challenging route to operate.
The station staff also favoured the removal of c2c's trains from Liverpool
Street, as these trains were perceived to have a particularly challenging
clientele with whom it was necessary to cope.

I don't know if you've ever been at Liverpool Street while it's full of
Essex boys and girls on their way home after a night out, but
"particularly challenging" is a pretty good description!

Where abouts are the Victoria Line platforms, though?
