If you had to close or two Dec 7, 2021 16:17:03 GMT via mobile

But I’m saying the London Overground line, particularly on the 17 min gaps between trains, will not physically be able to carry the number of passengers on the line during rush hour (potentially even at weekends/off peak but I don’t use it enough at those times to say). And London Northwestern services already struggle during the peaks too (not quite as bad as pre-covid yet, but getting close at certain times) so that won’t help much either. It just will not be able to operate safely with such overcrowding and so would be better to just shut the overground line too until/unless the overground frequency can be increased to at least every 8 mins (perhaps the overground could have alternating short journeys, operating between Harrow & Wealdstone and.. as close to Euston as possible).
Then maybe they’ll do that with the alternating short journeys idea - like I said, I really hope it doesn’t come to it especially as I’ve done the journey myself along that stretch so I know how important it is but the point I’m making is TfL no longer care be it because they don’t want to or can’t afford to depending on your viewpoint.
