Good shout. No it doesn’t go into central London. I do believe it skirts around Stamford Bridge though!

If you mean the Milton Keynes train then it isn't running.

I travel that way most days so would advise to go to Clapham Junction, then get the Overground from platform 1 to Willesden Junction. From there you can get the Overground to Watford. Normally takes an hour from Thornton Heath to Wembley so not much more to Watford.

Shed loads of the wonderful engineering works on the O/ground at w/e's tho Steph & no, I wasn't thing of the MK train due to works, I was thinking of the WJ train itself.

They've got engineering works apparently.

Watford (metropolitan line) seems to be the only suitable route via train/underground unless anyone can offer an alternative?

You're right, even the Overground isn't running on Sunday.

this is normally one of the easiest games for me to get to, can be under a hr.

Sunday looks a complete nightmare & train line suggesting 4 changes & over a 2hr journey.
