They were right! Yesterday (28th September), Shepherd’s Bush Overground finally opened its doors to the public after a delay last year in which the northbound platform was deemed too narrow and had to be widened. But now it is all sorted out and today, I decided to pay a visit to the all new station to be built on the West London line of London Overground. After waiting half an hour at Willesden Junction missing the Clapham Junction train that had left just a few minutes before, I step onto another to check out the new station. I was impressed when the train had arrived at Shepherd’s Bush station. It is even the first to sport the brand new London Overground roundels! Here is an small gallery of the all new station:
What are my thoughts of the new station? I think it looks very well built and very clean (well at the time I was there anyway!). Very spacious and complete step free access from the station entrance, ticket hall, right to the station platforms. A very exciting addition to what is becoming a growing area of West London! If you haven’t visited the station, do have a look!
In addition, some of you may have noticed on maps online at the TfL website that does not show the new timetable with times of trains serving Shepherd’s Bush Overground. I picked up the following leaflet from Shepherd’s Bush Overground which has the new timetable!
What do you think of the new station? Let me know!
