Elizabeth Line First Look

We took a brief journey on the Elizabeth Line, London’s newest suburban service, which made its debut less than two years ago.

Key to the Elizabeth Line is the newly constructed underground Cross Rail link. This connects the Great Western route with the Great Eastern route via central London.

We traveled a short section of the Cross Rail section.

The subway section is very clean and looks new.

A safety feature are platform doors that line up with train doors. This makes photography of the train underground challenging.

The route was named for Queen Elizabeth II and color chosen for the Elizabeth line is a royal purple.
