One thing I’ve always strived to do with the fare finder on this site is to simplify the number of duplicate station entries. The TfL single fare finder lists Harrow & Wealdstone twice, for example, once as an Underground station and once as an Overground and National Rail station. There is only one station and the Underground and Overground trains use the same platforms. Thus on this site the station is only listed once with both LU and NR shown as modes (LO is part of NR).
The arrival of the Elizabeth line has added another level of complexity. TfL would like to see it as a new mode, separate from both Underground and National Rail. They do, however, concede that it is a National Rail service, especially when the East and West sections are rebranded on Tuesday. I would like to maintain EL as just another NR operator, but the position of EL within the Underground stations at Paddington and Liverpool Street has made that problematic. So, for the moment I have reluctantly added EL as a new mode which only covers the core section between Paddington and Abbey Wood. I’ll review this decision later in the year.
So, while the single fare finder lists Farringdon Underground Station, Farringdon National Rail Station and just Farringdon as three separate entries, this site’s fare finder just lists Farringdon with modes LU, NR and EL.
If you notice anything which maybe doesn’t seem right when using the fare finder in the coming days, please do create a topic in our forum and I will either try to explain, or potentially fix a bug, or make it clearer.
