East London Line has started running

Down the Ditch: shiny station awaits Dalstoners travelling south to Shoreditch. 

Dalston Junction now has trains running out of it. To a background of Bollywood dancing Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, today Tuesday 27 April 2010 opened the East London Line (map), surprising ex-Mayor Ken Livingstone, who had wanted at least to share the credit.  A 07.05-20.00 service is running from E8 to New Cross every five minutes. The official opening is still planned for Sunday 23 May 2010; at least, so says Transport for London. The plan is then to extend the service to its full South London glory: the end of the line will be West Croydon, which anyone from the other quarters of No 1 City will agree has a certain logic.
