Looks like Crossrail is meant to at least partially address the Chelney route(s).

Some of those new stations are getting rather ridiculous -- Moorgate & Liverpool Street & (& Liverpool Street), Barbican & Farringdon (& Farringdon), Bow Road & Bow Church (I think these are the same station, it's not entirely clear) and the two Shepherd's Bushes (on the same line!). Tavistock Street is going to be fun to build, if they're planning on running the Cross River Transit at the same depth as the other services in that area....

I hadn't noticed the two Shepherd's Bushes -- I assume that they'll rename one of them!

Bow Road and Bow Church are already currently indicated like that; there's actually a 300-or-so-yard walk between the two, and I wouldn't recommend it as an interchange in practice if you have any other sane option; particularly since Dwell Times at both stations tend to be O(5-10 mins) as well.

Hmm so they merge some stations but keep the silly Euston and Euston square split? How odd.

I think it's all a plan to make that part of the network look better joined up; whilst not seriously confusing very many people because they never travel out there anyway.

I thought of incorporating Cross-Rail into Underground, but decided that that would make it too confusing ;)
