messagetrains this weekend from Peckham
Posted by mayo February 06, 08:02PM

From looking at the app - buses replace trains this weekend on both the Peckham Rye to London Bridge line and on the London Overground. I've found the info on the overground closure on TFL but can't see anything about the London Bridge one on either TFL or southeastern trains (this mentions closure on victoria - bromley / lewisham lines but nothing about london bridge)

Has anybody seen anything at the station about this? I cycle so don't use the station during the week. Just wondering if the app is correct or not. If so it's most annoying to be closing so many lines affecting the same station on the same day.

Yup, the app is usually correct. Iíve checked and no trains from ED to London Bridge this weekend. Looks like no overground from Peckham to Clapham Junction either. I usually go to Denmark Hill and make my way to London Victoria when this happens or Herne Hill into central London, as I find the a Rail Replacement fairly unreliable - plus it can take ages!

Thanks. We need the jubilee line to east of london so Victoria isnít really any good. We wanted London Bridge or Canada Water and frustrating that neither option is working on Saturday! Why canít they spread these works out a bit?

This is the live departure board feed for Peckham Rye Station. Worth a look tomorrow to see if anything is running

So no trains to South Bermondsey and Millwall playing at home on Sunday.
1,000 + Away supporters and a lot of Home supporters coming in from London Bridge.
They are going to need a lot of Rail replacement Buses. #Chaos

Alternatives could be to take a bus to New Cross Gate and pick up the overground to Canada Water from there; or train from Peckham Rye to Lewisham and then the DLR or if via London Bridge is better, the train.

The engineering works are between Streatham and Peckham Rye which takes out Tulse Hill - that's the major junction handling everything from Streatham, Streatham Hill and West Norwood. Take out Tulse Hill and you've lost three entire lines.

363 or 63 to Elephant is prob your best bet. Was always my preferred choice pre-Overground

messageRe: trains this weekend from Peckham
Posted by Sally Eva February 07, 05:19PM

For anyone cycling, the route from East Dulwich to the Elephant is very good, direct and safe. Loads of parking when you get there. I shall probably do it like that tomorrow as long as the weather isn't too vile.

It's here: [cycle.travel] -- three miles.

On Saturday, there is only a 30 minute train service to London Bridge from Forest Hill, Honor Oak Park and New Cross Gate due to engineering works. Sunday trains run every 15 mins from those stations, although they may be affected by Storm Ciara.

Peckham Rye sees Victoria trains running only every 30 mins, while Denmark Hill has three trains per hour to Victoria with buses replacing Thameslink and Overground trains.

You can take the 63 bus direct to Southwark Tube for the Jubilee line, from the Peckham Rye side of ED. Check Blackfriars Road is open again after waterworks, otherwise E&c and 10 mins walk. I do this regularly and on a Sunday itís half an hour from the top of Forest Hill Road and easiest / less changes

It is quite normal, and in fact has been so ever since I've been in SE London... over 15 years. There's always a reasonable chance that trains won't be running on the weekends.

Would really struggle living here without a car, TBH. Failing that, buses are better than nothing... just...

There are some emergency repairs overnight 14-15 Feb to the line between Peckham Rye and Nunhead. According to [www.nationalrail.co.uk] they're scheduled to be done by 06:00, but it might be prudent to check on [ojp.nationalrail.co.uk] that there's been no overrun.

Looks ok now, Saturday 10:05
