Long Description:

Twyford tube station is an existing mainline station that now services Elizabeth Line trains. It is the penultimate stop before Reading on the western section of the line.

The trains are a vast improvement on the rolling stock used on the other tube lines. The trains have nine carriages that can be walked through from end-to-end and measure nearly 200 metres in length. They each have a capacity of 1300 passengers.

On the well-known tube map the Elizabeth Line is indicated by two parallel purple lines.

The Crossrail (project name of the Elizabeth Line) website tells us:

When the full route opens, two Elizabeth line trains an hour (four an hour at peak times) will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.

Due to the platform length at Twyford, not all doors on 9-carriage, full-length Elizabeth line trains will open. Audio and visual information as to which carriages you can alight from will be available on the train.

You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services.

Is there other puplic transportation in the area?: Yes

What level is the station?: Street level
