ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM SHENFIELD
Since May 2015, TfL has been operating the stopping services from Shenfield station. New Class 345 trains are in use between this station and Liverpool Street. The majority are currently seven-car long, with an upgrade programme due in the autumn of 2021 to increase these trains to nine-car (which is the full length of train for Elizabeth line services when it opens in the first half of 2022).
When the full route opens, passengers will be able to travel through central London without having to change trains.
At peak times, Shenfield station will be served by 12 Elizabeth line services an hour in each direction. Fast services into Liverpool Street will be unaffected by the introduction of the new Crossrail service.
You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services. To find out which these are, see TfL's user guide or use the advanced options in Cycle Journey Planner.
