As I write this, it has come to my attention how fast 2007 has gone…and how soon the East London line will be closing down from the London Underground on 22nd December (this coming Saturday!).
So what’s happening? Well the East London line is being upgraded to become the East London railway, part of London Overground. The line will have new stations and extensions from both sides of the existing line. The line is scheduled to reopen in Summer of 2010. But it will be lost from the London Underground network forever. I have taken a huge number of photos from the East London line on its last few days of operation. One can be seen above at Wapping station…but the rest will be made available to see soon on one of our websites, London Moving! This website will contain a huge gallery of information of every London Underground, Overground, DLR and Tramlink station!
You can check out the progress of the website by following the link:
Check it out! Has anyone been on the East London line? What do you think of the last few days of operation? Are you going to miss it? Let me know!!!
