Tube Times v1, Saturday 9th July 2016
The perfect accompaniment to the series of pocket guides, is Tube Times. It is an A4 Quick Guide, running to 258 pages (**corrected now 12*** 13 in colour).
As most of you will know, London Underground do not issue printed timetables for their services, with the exception of rural services in Herts and Bucks. We find that printed timetables can be useful in deep tunnel areas, as well as in areas with poor mobile signal. The first page of each tube entry is the frequency information, taken from the Working Timetables. The following pages are the first/last train times, which you can use for approximate times between stations.
We also include details of London Overground and TfL Rail services too. Overground do print timetable booklets (minus the rail replacement buses!), but TfL Rail do not print anything at all timetable wise.
We have included the Docklands Light Railway, where information panels we have used before no longer appear online or on platforms. Therefore we have to use the information we can obtain from Traveline South East. The Emirates AirLine is also included in this guide.
Finally, following it’s addition to the Tube Map, we have added timetables for the London Trams network. This book therefore contains more detailed information, for every service presently on the Tube Map.
Engineering work is happening some evenings on the Metropolitan Line and all Summer on the GOBLIN (Gospel Oak – Barking Overground), and the information for these works can be found under each service entry. Night Tube will be starting very soon, and there is some information on that too.
As with other experiments, if it goes well, look out for more of these – maybe with improved binding too!
***Binding now staple binding with spine tape, instead of four hole punching with treasury tags. Gloss sheet on just the cover***
A4 bound with treasury tags, gloss cover sheets covering the outer pages, Code 747_H2T_TUB_V1, price £16.00 to your door in the UK.
Will include a loose-leaf edition of the Tube Map, once I get some of the corrected paper copies in from TfL!
