Well they're not based on reality, because you based your last idea of transferring Amersham/Chesham services to Marylebone on fantasy, as you didn't know that to build new platforms at Marylebone you would have to demolish a large BNP Paribas branch, loads of houses and the new platforms that Chiltern built a couple of years ago.
I knew that the current "new" platforms will have to moved forward towards the station and quite a lot of buildings will have to go, but there is nothing that is listed and also I don't base my ideas on the property transactions of the railways.
The trouble with the Met is that its more of a suburban railway than a metro lines
Lol, its pretty obvious from a glance at Google Earth that the BNP Paribas building is a big obstacle.
Why not demolish the RBS buildings on Bishopsgate to build some new platforms for Liverpool Street? After all, that 6tph from Aldeburgh is going to have to terminate somewhere!
With Liverpool Street, there will be a few more platforms available once Crossrail is built
...Why not demolish the RBS buildings on Bishopsgate to build some new platforms for Liverpool Street?...
Well, at least that
building is owned or at least occupied by the Government!
I think Liverpool Street station really should be renamed (Broadgate maybe) to avoid confusing the country bumpkins at Norwich, but that's going off topic again, sorry!
London Broadgate is a rather good idea!
Which of your plans have actually come to fruition then?
He's the only person to suggest such crazy
ideas (though someone like 01jtiong - who can be found on Thestudentroom these days - comes kind-of close, ish!) so spotting duplicate accounts is incredibly easy
For god sake I am not transport minister and anyway, the ideas I am suggesting will take years to do
Also My ideas are not crazy, unless you describe any idea to improve the railways as one!
