Gospel Oak To Barking Line

Gospel Oak To Barking Line

The Gospel Oak – Barking Line is a railway line in north and east London which connects Gospel Oak in North London and Barking in East London as part of the London Overground network. It is sometimes known as the Goblin (for Gospel Oak and Barking LINe), although this is a nickname rather than an official title. Unlike most railways in London, the line does not pass through the central Zone 1. Traditionally the line has played a minor role in London's transport system; however, it is now receiving significant investment to increase its capacity. The line is part of the Network Rail Strategic Route 6, SRS 06.03 and 06.05. It is classified as a London and South East Commuter line.

Famous quotes containing the words gospel, oak, barking and/or line:

    A good man was ther of religioun,
    And was a poure persoun of a toun,
    But riche he was of hooly thoght and werk.
    He was also a lerned man, a clerk,
    That Cristes gospel trewely wolde preche.
    His parisshens devoutly wolde he teche.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    When the red-cheeked, dancing girls, April and May, trip home to the wintry, misanthropic woods; even the barest, ruggedest, most thunder-cloven old oak will at least send forth some few green sprouts, to welcome such glad-hearted visitants.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Your next-door neighbour ... is not a man; he is an environment. He is the barking of a dog; he is the noise of a pianola; he is a dispute about a party wall; he is drains that are worse than yours, or roses that are better than yours.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    A line in long array, where they wind betwixt green islands;
    They take a serpentine course—their arms flash in the sun—hark to the musical clank;
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
