Default District curiosity today

Sitting at Acton Town on a Piccadilly train today I was a bit surprised to
see a District train pull up for High St Kensington. was this special
service for the Easter engineering works? I can't say i've seen any Ealing
Broadway to High St trains before.

There are a few early morning / late evening services that run direct.
Try searching on the TfL journey planner for Ealing Broadway - High
Street Kensington at around 06.00 or 23.45. They can also run this way
when there are problems on the route via the City.

It used to be the case that there was at least one run during the day to
turn over the Olympia shuttle set.

Not at 4 pm on Easter Monday, though!


Yes, but as there was Engineering work on the City line ('problems on
the route via the City'), it is not surprising that Ealing services
were running to High Street Kensington.

As an aside, some of the Ealing - High St Ken services used to be
formed of C Stock which then took up Wimbleware services. However, I
don't know if this is still the case.

Many years ago, in the middle of the day, I saw C stock doing a run
from Richmond to Edgware Road.

Maybe there had been a temporary blockage on the Wimbledon route and
it was being fed back in, having not blocked Earl's Court.
