If anyone wants to watch how the testing is going, the signalmaps site has the best detail I've seen:

https://signalmaps.co.uk/#crossrail:946

Trains, signals, routes, berth occupation all shown (though the route set can be a little difficult to interpret).

Plus there's still the odd glitch like a train appearing where it is and where it isn't at the same time.

RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) Stratford Tfl for this Sunday

Apologies, when modifying the link it seems OK but changes when posted.

Suggest go to RTT, enter Stratford, TOC (Train Operating Company) XR (Crossrail) Tfl, time 1023-1953, date 12/09/21

Crossrail trial running through the tunnels

Opening up the link did get to the SRA» (Strategic Rail Authority - about). That part of the link is hidden when you copy and paste from the RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) web address.

However if you go to the RTT site
Enter
Location  Stratford
TOC (Train Operating Company) XR (Crossrail) Tfl
Time they run from 1023 to 1953
Date 12/09/21
That opens the page and should show trains running east from London Paddington

Issue is our system for expanding abbreviations on the forum - with an abbreviation in the URL it causes trouble.

Abbreviations are only expanded once in a message so if I mention SRA, WVS and XR (Crossrail) before I give the URL , it works:

The left hand side of London Paddington has now been opened out in preparation for the commencement of Elizabeth Line services through Paddington.
