With a new tube map for May 2018, TfL Rail services now run between Paddington through Hayes and Harlington, and down to Heathrow. We went to catch the first ever 'purple' train (Class 345) in passenger service, and try to get our heads around the service pattern... TO SUMMARISE! BEFORE ... - Heathrow Express (4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - Heathrow Connect, USED to run to Terminal 2&3, and then also (if you stayed on) to T5 as well - There was a Heathrow Express shuttle every 15 minutes between T2&3 and T4. AFTER ... - Heathrow Express - UNCHANGED - 4 trains per hour, to Terminals 2&3 and then T5) - TfL Rail, two trains per hour (New Class 345) only as far as Hayes & Harlington - Old 'Connect' trains (now with TfL Rail badge on them) every half an hour, all the way to T2&3, and then T4. - TfL Rail shuttle every half an hour between T4 and T2&3, meaning that there is a train every 15 minutes from T4 FUTURE ... - Crossrail/Elizabeth Line (New Class 345 purple trains) will run 6 trains an hour to T2&3, four with then go to T4, two will go to T5. - Heathrow Express remains unchanged... for now. Clear as mud? Excellent.

York Road is a disused station on the London Underground in England, located between King's Cross and Caledonian Road, with its entrance at the corner of York Road (now York Way) and Bingfield Street. It opened in 1906 and was one of the original stations on the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway (GNP&BR), the precursor to today's Piccadilly line. The surface buildings were constructed in the distinctive style of architect Leslie Green, and were connected to the platforms by a single lift shaft containing two lifts. Traffic levels were never high, and the station closed in 1932, on the same day that the northern extension of the Piccadilly Line from Finsbury Park to Arnos Grove opened.

Are you sharing too much information when you buy on line? Well you certainly will be if you use Paypal. I have already posted my story here on this site so I will not repeat it again. Only it seems a little absurd to sell a product based on not sharing information when in fact Paypal makes totally unreasonable and possibly illegal demands AFTER taking your money. Please also see my website and blogs which contain information about where this was filmed and some of the background: http://www.pbn.com.pl and http://www.ceepackaging.com

Brompton Road is a disused station on the Piccadilly line of the London Underground, located between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations. It was closed in 1934, nearly 28 years after being opened by the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway company. During the Second World War it was used as the command centre of the 26th (London) Anti-Aircraft Brigade. In 2014, the owner of the site, the Ministry of Defence, sold it to a Ukrainian businessman, Dmytro Firtash, who claimed an intention to convert it to residential use.

The Shard (also referred to as the Shard of Glass, Shard London Bridge or the London Bridge Tower) is a skyscraper in London. Its construction began in March 2009; it was topped out on 30 March 2012 and inaugurated on 5 July 2012. Standing 309.6 metres (1,016 ft) high, the Shard is the tallest completed building in the European Union, and is also the second-tallest free-standing structure in the United Kingdom, after the 330-metre (1,083 ft) concrete tower at the Emley Moor transmitting station. The Shard replaced Southwark Towers, a 24-storey office block built on the site in Southwark in 1975. Renzo Piano, the Shard's architect, worked with the architectural firm Broadway Malyan during the planning stage. The tower has 72 habitable floors, with a viewing gallery and open-air observation deck -- the UK's highest -- on the 72nd floor, at a height of 245 metres (804 ft). The Shard was designed with an irregular pyramidal shape from the base to the top, and is clad entirely in glass.

"The Man With The Watches", by Arthur Conan Doyle (1898). Read by Frank Blissett. An audiobook of a classic short story, dedicated to my friend (and fellow Sherlock Holmes fan) Hilary Georgia Millet-Clark as an early birthday present. This short story has an interesting relationship to Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. It dates to the period between Sherlock Holmes' death in "The Final Problem" and his return in "The Adventure Of The Empty House". As such, Sherlock Holmes is not mentioned by name, though a letter by a "well-known criminal investigator", sounding quite a bit like Sherlock Holmes, is given. There is, to be sure, a discrepency between Holmes' death occuring in 1891 while the events of this story were set in 1892. Yet in "The Adventure Of Wisteria Lodge", Doyle himself mistakenly described the incident at Reichenbach Falls as occuring in 1892. The story itself is told in three parts. First, the narrator describes a crime that had stirred the public's imagination several years earlier. In doing so, he also recounts a letter from the aformentioned "well-known criminal investigator" giving his take on the matter. Lastly, the narrator reprints a letter received by this investigator, from one of the participants in the crime. An interesting question I had while reading the story was whether there was any intent on Doyle's part to give homosexual overtones to the relationship between Edward and MacCoy. Though Doyle used the word "queer" as a non-sexual term as late as 1904, the word had begun to take on its more pejorative meaning seveal years before "The Man With The Watches" was written. In addition, his use of "Mary Jane" may very well be a varient of "Mary Ann" - a slang term of the era for an effeminate man or a male prostitute. We also see MacCoy describing his deep love for Edward, and know that MacCoy put his projects on hold to travel across an ocean to bring Edward back. In some ways, Edward's life-arc mirrors that seen in Willa Cather's 1905 story "Paul's Case". Even if Doyle did not intend for this story to be interpreted this way, it can certainly feel like it from the perspective of the early 21st century. Either way, it was fun to read an Arthur Conan Doyle mystery for you.

(English below) Detta är resultatet av många timmars arbete... Jag har tidigare laddat upp den här sträckan på YouTube, men det finns flera förändringar: För det första är hela sträckan i en sammanhängande film. För det andra är upplösningen 1080p (tidigare 720p). För det tredje är filmen bättre färgkorrigerad. För det fjärde, och viktigast, är filmen FULLPROPPAD med intressant information – om platserna vi passerar, om järnvägens historia och lite andra saker. Aktivera undertexterna för att ta del av den! Helst hade jag velat ha en nyinspelning av sträckan, men det är för närvarande svårt att hitta lokförare som kan/vill erbjuda plats åt min kamera i förarhytten. Jag hoppas på bättre lycka i framtiden. Jag jobbar även på att göra undertexter till mina andra tågfilmer här på YouTube. Ha tålamod – det tar tid! ;) Tågtyp: X31/X32 (Öresundståg) This is the result of many hours of work... I've uploaded this stretch previously on YouTube, but several changes have been made: First, the whole stretch can now be seen in a single movie. Second, the resolution is now 1080 (previously 720p). Third, this movie has better color correction. Fourth, and most important, the movie is PACKED with interesting information – about the places we're passing, about railroad history and some other things. Activate the subtitles to read them! I would have preferred to make a new recording of this stretch, but it's very hard at the moment to find train drivers willing/able to offer my video camera a place in their cabins. I'm hoping for better luck in the future. I'm also working on creating subtitles to my other railroad videos here on YouTube. Be patient – it takes time! ;) Train type: X31/X32 (Öresundståg)
