Purple line (City of Thames)
|City of Thames|
The Purple line is a sub-surface line of the City of Thames underground network which runs from Aldgate and Queens Cross in the centre of the city and Northbury Junction, North Redfield and South Redfield in the north-west of the city. There is a limited service between Aldgate and Queens Cross via Oxford Cross as well, which is normally served by the Yellow line.
The base service pattern is 6 trains per hour between South Redfield and Aldgate, 6 trains between Northbury Junction and Queens Cross, 3 trains between North Redfield and GWR Station and 3 trains between Blueford and GWR Station. In the peak the services towards Aldgate and GWR Station are extended as far as Oxford Cross, and an additional 6 trains per hour are added between Northbury Junction and Aldgate. These trains only run southbound in the morning and northbound in the evening. In the morning peak, the Aldgate services run fast betwen GWR Station and Aldgate, all other trains run as all stations service.
In the evening when the Yellow line service is reduced, the Purple Line service is extended between Aldgate and Queens Cross via Oxford Cross. After 22:00, the North Redfield branch is served only by a shuttle service to Buckshire Town.
