I believe Route N8 would still be viable, but at a reduced frequency. Areas such as Shoreditch/Bethnal Green will require a night service! Bare in mind, the tube will only be operating 24hrs on weekends...
For Route N8, I would re-route it back to Woodford Wells and onto Loughton, but from Woodford, The Castle go via Route 275 to Woodford Bridge, High Road Chigwell, down High Road Chigwell, left onto Roding Lane North via Route 167 to Buckhurst Hill and then via Route 549 to Loughton Station.
Main Benefits - It would serve the central line Epping Branch stations to Loughton(Snaresbrook/South Woodford/Woodford/Buckhurst Hill/Loughton)
Another alteration to the route is in regards to the eastbound journey. It should loop into Leytonstone Bus Station, so that passengers who come off the central line at Leytonstone who wish to go any station on the Epping branch up to Loughton can easily interchange.
**It would be better if Route N8 could go via Route 549 from Woodford Station to Loughton, but I do not think double deckers can go under the bridge at Roding Valley Station**
In terms of Route N55 I would divert it at the junction of Markhouse Road and Church Street via Route 158 to Leyton Green and via Route 97 to Chingford. In addition I would extend it from Oxford Circus to Trafalgar Square.
(Chingford - Walthamstow - Midlands - Lea Bridge Rd - Hackney - Shoreditch - Old St - Clerkenwell - Holborn - TCR - Oxford Circus - Piccadilly Circus - Trafalgar Square)
*A PVR increase would be necessary for the additional number of passengers
*Route N26 can be withdrawn
