Based on WTT No.43, dated 10 Dec 2017.
The only microgricing change arises from retiming of the last Euston to Watford Junction train, resulting indirectly in increased use of the Queen’s Park facing crossover. This
guide indicates the complete booked passenger service over all running lines, crossovers, slips and platforms where that is not readily deducible. LU train running numbers are
shown in [square brackets].
— = Known passenger use during disruption.
• Connections with Jubilee Line at Baker Street, Queens Park south slip—, Willesden Junction crossovers (both ends)™ and Wembley Central crossover™: no booked use.
• Lambeth North (both)™, Piccadilly Circus, Paddington™ and Harrow & Wealdstone— crossovers: ECS only.
• Kilburn High Road crossover™: ECS only, by both LU (reversing at Kilburn High Road) and LO (reversing there and at Queens Park).
• Willesden Junction bay P2 (too short for Bakerloo trains, so LO use only, all to or from North London Line):

Based on WTT No.340, dated 21 May 2017.

This guide does not cover south of Baker Street Jn (that is left to the companion Hammersmith & City Line guide), but it does include the Piccadilly Line west of Rayners Lane
siding. It indicates the complete booked passenger service over all running lines, crossovers and platforms where that is not readily deducible. Arriving train running numbers are
shown in [square brackets]. The medium-term earlier MTWO evening closure between Baker Street and Finchley Road for overnight work on track and drainage is written into
this WTT; however, that work is suspended when there is an event at Wembley Stadium.

• Although a headnote is defined for trains to call at Willesden Green, none is booked to do so, nor at Neasden.
• Between Neasden and Wembley Park, connections with Jubilee Line: no booked use.
• Chalfont & Latimer P3: no booked use.
• Trailing crossovers at Swiss Cottage, Rayners Lane, Ruislip Siding, Northwood™, Rickmansworth™ and Chalfont & Latimer: ECS only.

The current WTT No.57 and is dated 29 Jan 2018.
 
Since the last guide the evening peak has been lengthened. The main microgricing impacts are (1) a few turnrounds re-appear in Golders Green centre road in the evening peak;
(2) the Golders Green Northbound Loop is reduced to once a week; and (3) the link from Finchley Central P2 towards Mill Hill East gains its first booked use your compiler has
seen (to overtake a terminated train in P1 – but not until British Summer Time will it happen in daylight!).

All running lines, crossovers, slips and platforms are in passenger use throughout service hours every day except the following, for which the complete booked passenger service
is indicated. Running numbers of trains which might otherwise be difficult to identify on the day are shown in [square brackets].

• Crossovers at East Finchley, Moorgate™, Mornington Crescent, Charing Cross™ and Stockwell™: no booked use.
• Euston long crossover; Kings Cross connection to Piccadilly Line: engineer’s trains only.
• Hampstead crossover™: ECS only.

Based on WTT No.58, dated 21 May 2017.

Although a full analysis of current WTT No 58 has not been undertaken, it is confirmed that those tracks which do not see at least much-of-the-day use by Piccadilly or District

All running lines, crossovers, slips and platforms are currently in passenger use throughout traffic hours except the following, for which the booked passenger service is given
here. Running numbers of trains which might be difficult to identify on the day are shown in [square brackets].
