Dear Transport for London,

Could you please attach copies of both the current unit diagrams and the current working timetables for all London Overground (Arriva Rail London) and TFL Rail (MTR Crossrail) trains. I would like them for all services and lines and all train types (172/315/317/321/345/360/378).

Dear Mr Brown

 

TfL Ref: 0590-1819

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 2
June 2018 asking for information about our current unit diagrams and
working timetables for London Overground and TFL Rail services.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. You
asked for copies of both the current unit diagrams and the current working
timetables for all London Overground (Arriva Rail London) and TFL Rail
(MTR Crossrail) trains.

 

I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

 

Working timetables are available from the Network Rail website:
[1]https://www.networkrail.co.uk/running-th...

 

In accordance with section 21 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply
you with a copy of the requested information as it is already accessible
to you elsewhere.

 

With regards to the part of your request for unit diagrams, in accordance
with the FOI Act we are not obliged to supply the information as it is
subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information
under section 38. In this instance the exemption has been applied as
disclosure of the information you have requested would be likely to
endanger the safety of an individual or individuals. The use of this
exemption in relation to similar information was considered by the
Information Commissioner in [2]Decision Notice FS50607218 which was issued
on 17 March 2016. The Commissioner upheld both the application of the
exemption and the balance of the public interest. We consider the same
arguments apply to your request.

 

Disclosures made under the FOI Act are deemed to be a ‘disclosure to the
world at large’ and whilst we make no suggestion that you would use this
information for anything other than your own personal interests, it could
be used by individuals who wish to cause harm or disruption to our
customers, staff and network.  Whilst similar information may have been
disclosed in the past in response to FOI requests, the decision to
withhold information which could be used in conjunction with other
material to cause harm and disruption across any transport operator was
made following a security review of information.  Additionally in light of
the current treat levels in the UK being classed as severe by MI5, the
public interest in protecting individuals and infrastructure is very high
and our upmost priority. Whilst we recognise that there are individual and
personal interests in understanding the workings of the transport network,
there is not the kind of wider public interest in the disclosure of this
information that exists in disclosure of information

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
