We had a very good bus connection from High Barnet to Cockfosters, but we lost time gain at Arnos Grove, so we are now planning on missing the 9 stations of the Heathrow-spur.

Heathrow is supposed to look like this on the map. But at the moment T4 is closed so they can build the track for T5, so this becomes another of those "in-and-out" termini for us.

This is what Heathrow is going to look like on the map (it will still be a one-way loop, even though that's not shown on this section), and it's going to present a new challenge when it happens – I guess we'll have to wait to see if anyone comes up with a an imaginative route around the stations.

I'd heard a rumour that they were going to extend the Central line out to Heathrow (from the Ealing Broadway branch), but I've not been able to track down anything about it...

Crossrail, which at this end appears to be Heathrow Connect upgraded to run through Paddington to the other side of London.

Strange. I was sure that Crossrail ran down to Richmond. Maybe they've changed the plans since I last looked.

So did you make it? Are you still alive? Is it taking days to recover from the exertion? :-)

Well, except for those 9 stations, yes.
