    Crossrail - Construction updates and progress towards opening (now expected 24 May 2022)

    I think the case for the inclusion of the Thameslink core is doubly strong given that fares are charged on the LU scale.

    TfL Maps

    When I moved to my flat I transported a fair bit of Ikea furniture via Tramlink and Thameslink. That said my dining table still has the scars from sliding down the full length of the platform 1 stairs at Elephant & Castle.

    Are e-tickets the way forward?

    Yes the website gives that impression, but it is wrong. It’s maddening that they give duff information about their own products.

    Companies and shops that people often do not realised are owned by other companies.

    Crossrail - Construction updates and progress towards opening (now expected 24 May 2022)

    I think the point is that if you are at Paddington and want to travel to Reading, the Elizabeth line might not be your best option
