    Great, just wish they'd done it twenty years ago!

    Mrs Miggins There's been a slight cheese accident

    Wish the Vicky line had been 24 hours last night as it would have saved me £20 and an encounter with a nasty little man asking if I needed a lift to north London. Ugh.

    When does it go 24 hours?

    although this may get delayed due to tfl not yet having reached agreement with staff - strike action was voted for last week

    I've been hearing rumblings about RMT considering industrial action over this, and found this on their website.

    As ever, I'm very ignorant on the details but I wouldn't be at all surprised if 'management' had just looked at it all on paper without giving serious consideration to the real-world logistical implications of running the tube at night.

    Also, watch property prices along these lines soar, which they probably did as soon as this was announced, tbf.

    Hmm, I'd still have to cycle from Loughton and its cycle lock up is a bit to far from the actual tube office for me to feel comfortable doing that.

    Bugger.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    ASLEF (driver's union) have already balloted - over 80% in favour of action, IIRC.

    I won't use it much but it will be very handy for those gigs that are the far side of London and insist on running until well after the last tube transforming a simple short tube ride into a hour+ long odyssey involving two night buses and freezing my ass off in Trafalgar square waiting for the second (and probably waiting for the first one at the start too).

    I read an article recently about homeless people using the night bus to get through the night, will some move on to the tube? Not that I have a problem with that, it definitely could be better for them with it being warmer than the bus.

    absolutely no use to south east london
    running the east london line would be a great move

    i vaguely remember a fair amount of reported wrangling over this before it was announced as a goer, so surprised that there are now issues

    to a large extent...

    There is an intention to add more Friday / Saturday night buses to connect with the tube at Morden and N Greenwich (and so on) - more here.

    I'll be able to get to work easier on a Sunday morning now. Currently have to get the last nightbus at 4.30, walk two miles and turn up 45 minutes early.

    Having spent the best part of 20 years catching night buses across london in the early hours.. they would introduce it just as i reach an age where an exciting night out means getting a pint of milk from Tesco Express. I hope the younger generation appreciate it. :mad: :(

    <feeling bitter and twisted>

    It's currently a rare weekend that finds all those lines working. Does this reflect the fact that all needed line renewals have been completed or do we just have the joys of 24 hour rail replacement bus services to look forward to?

    Much like the day service... ;)

    Getting to N. Greenwich will cut out a lot of the night bus journey, but I'll still have to get one, maybe two depending on whether I can be bothered to walk up the hill or wait around for another bus to take me up it :(

    Yeah, I was a bit too, although also not, iyswim.
    I think that's one of RMT's objections - a lot of repairs are done at night, so they've just had that cut down.

    Insider's view

    There's also further mention of the night tube amongst the other points.

    Could happen by 2017 according to TfL. I imagine it's more challenging due to the track sharing with national rail and freight services.
    They're being a bit sneaky and packing in the weekend closures before Night Tube starts so that it looks really good for the rest of the year. http://diamondgeezer.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/night-tube-closures-2.html
    Who knows how it will go in 2016?

    I'd love to know why all night tubes haven't run in the past and why they can run them now? Is it just funding, safety, or something else?
