These extra services are to meet the growing customer demand along this line.
The new services will depart Barking at 05:39 and 05:54 and are to run on weekdays only and are necessary to meet the growing passenger numbers.
Earlier in the year, new electric trains entered service on the line, which helped with the growing numbers.
The route will be continued to be operated by new Class 710 four-car trains. These trains feature USB points and real-time information screens along with a walkthrough and are fully air-conditioned.
What did the officials have to say?
Rory O’Neill, TfL’s General Manager for London Overground, said:
‘These two additional early morning trains are being introduced to meet growing customer demand on the route since the introduction of the new electric trains earlier this year.’
