Do you happen to know if this applies to airline crew based out of Heathrow ?


As long as you have a LHR ID then yes it does :)

Again the public is being ripped off.


Why are the public being ripped off? This is subsidised by BAA to encourage workers to use public transport rather than driving :)

Fantastic price.
Cheaper (and a whole lot quicker) than the tube
Great service, used it last time I was travelling to Heathrow.
Nice trains, space for luggage.

It's cheaper than the Heathrow Express, because it isn't an express, it stops at a couple stations on the way, and crazy locals can use it too.

I believe the main reason it started was for the workers at Heathrow?

Train travel to Heathrow from central London.... DONT FOLLOW THE CROWD AND SAVE £8.60 pp £6.90

If you are travelling from Central London to Heathrow airport (T1,2, or 3) then usually Heathrow Express train service seems the most obvious/quickest and convenient route. This is often the case,

Hi,

I was wondering is there any resource on the internet to check the speeds of the line?

Unfortunately wikipedia isnt too helpful on this with their rolling stock data as the older stock dont have top speeds given.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Underground_rolling_stock

thanks.

edit:

Also, is the top speed limited entirely by the vehicles themselves or the actual line? If you look at the 2009 stock for the victoria line, they will have a top speed of 50mph, which is an odd route to go since most of the newer stock handle 62mph.


Hmm im not sure really This shows some technical information but is not that extensive.

I know for sure that all C Stock trains (that run across and Circle, H&C and District between Wimbledon and Edgware road) are limited to 40 mph (there is even a sticker on the dashboard stating "Max speed 40mph") . I believe this is due to the bad condition these trains are in. The A Stock (which runs on the Metropolitan line), once the fastest stock on LUL and once capable of 70mph, is now limited to 50mph throughout the line. This again is due to the condition of the trains and the track in certain places on the Met.
The D stock (which runs on the District main) has got probably a max speed of between 50 and 55 mph which is only realistically achievable between Elm Park and Dagenham East because of the long run on this section, however there is a blanket max speed on the District now of 45mph due to condition of the track.

The other stock I'm not too sure about, the Jubilee I know can reach about 60mph between Canning Town to N.Greenwich WB.

The line speed for the District line is 45 mph MAX ! For the Jubilee it is 60mph max !

I was talking about what I faced at Paddington at the start of my journey. NOT Heathrow. At Paddington, there were departure screens but none mentioned the exact time when the Heathrow Connect would arrive. And, the only staff around was the ticket lady at the Heathrow Express desk.

I don't think you have been on the Disctrict line recently. With a revamped fleet, it's the same speed as Jubilee line.


HA you must be kidding! Firstly there are loads of screens at Paddington and Heathrow I use the station very regularly.

Secondly, I am a DRIVER on the District line, I know exactly how fast the trains go, and if anything it is slower than before they were 'revamped' due to all the extra weight (additional equipment etc) ! The line speed for the District line is 45 mph MAX ! For the Jubilee it is 60mph max !

What a load of Bull.... there are many many departure screens at Heathrow.. this is clearly shown on the screens and the service name "Heathrow Connect" if you don't know how to catch trains by looking at screens then god help you finding your gate at Heathrow!

There is many information staff, including at the centre of the concourse, or ticket office staff to ask! You must have been walking round with your eyes closed.

The Connect is not as slow as the District line as you say, it stops at extra stations and takes TEN minutes longer than the Express. As I stated in the original post, travel ten minutes longer to save £8 ... take it or leave it !
