No London Overground service all weekend (Southern railways operating)

From TFL’s weekly weekend travel email:

This leaves us with only 2 trains an hour on both Saturday and Sunday:

Forest Hill to London Bridge at 43 and 13 past each hour from 0643 to 2313

London Bridge to Forest Hill at 10 and 40 past each hour from 0610 to 2340 then 0020 & 0035

Forest Hill to London Bridge at 0749* then at 18 and 48 past each hour until 1218 then at 46, and 16 past each hour from 1246 until 2346

London Bridge to Forest Hill at 0731, 0801 then at 24 and 54 past each hour from 0824 to 2254 then 2331 and 2350

Southbound services from Forest Hill on Saturday terminate at Coulsdon Town but on Sunday terminate at Caterham/Tattenham Corner.

According to the ‘planned line closure’ information on the TFL website these weekend shutdowns on London Overground services are due to continue until the weekend of 15/16 August with a further closure on Sunday 23rd August. However the ‘engineering works’ information for London Overground on the National Rail Enquiries website does not match what is shown on TFL for every weekend!


Always go by what National Rail says, not TfL site. London Overground is a National Rail service running under TfL branding. Details of forthcoming engineering works are disseminated to staff weeks in advance on National Rail services (because they’re undertaken by Network Rail, the owners of pretty much all rail property in England). The works on East London Line are being undertaken by Cleshar on behalf of TfL, but they have to integrate in to the Network Rail systems, so they will have the proper information, not TfL.
