Will tube be running during train strike?

Hiya all. Spending a few days in London and was planning on coming home 17th Sept, lol. I'm now considering driving down and parking out of the city and getting the tube in and out of the centre. Anyone know if the tube will be running as usual on 17th please?

    Tube is running. London Overground not and possible that bits of tube line e.g. District to Richmond and Wimbledon will be affected as they run, in part, on lines signalled by National Rail

    Cheers giraffe. Looking at travelling north on Jubilee line, I'm pretty sure parts of that are overground, but worst case scenario then I could maybe get a bus from the point of being kicked off, lol. Cheers for your help and thoughts

    Parts of the Jubilee line do indeed run overground (above ground), but none of it is part of the Overground, which is a separate division of TfL.  The whole line will run normally.
    Perversely, some sections of the Overground do run underground, but they are not part of the Underground.

    And of course the rail strikes have now been cancelled in light of the death of the Queen
  • You can see the future status of Tube lines (and other TfL services like London Overground) on this link

    Tube, Overground, Elizabeth line, DLR & Tram status updates - Transport for London (tfl.gov.uk)

    Just enter the relevant date.

    At the moment the Jubilee Line is due to be running normally on Saturday 17th September but there may be changes to travel advice that weekend given that the Queen's funeral will probably take place in London on Monday 19th September. I'd advise you to check again nearer the date

    This should be issued as standard advice to non-Londoners who visit the capital - it reminds me of the "rules of cricket" that they sometimes print on tea towels:

    "You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out comes in, and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in, and the side that's been in goes out, and tries to get out those coming in."

    And at Whitechapel, the Underground is above the Overground :smiley:

    and for further confusion, IIRC just over half of "the Underground" is actually overground track
