On January 1st 2020, live services on the Central Line Hainault Loop appear correctly in the API…
By January 2nd, they are gone. This happened in 2019 and 2020. I believe it’s due to the working timetalble that was never introduced due to “gappng issues” around the loop. But it’s odd that the services appear correctly for one day, and then vanish for the rest of the year? Why is that? Does anyone know?
I can only ever see Inner rail services in the feed - Hainault TO Woodford.
There are no services showing Woodford TO Hainault, the outer rail service.
EXCEPT on January 1st, you can also see services FROM Woodford to Hainault, AND services that run from central London, Woodford via Hainault. But only for one day a year, when they run every day of the week. This is the live trains feed, not the timetable. In 2018 and 2019 the services always appeared, but in 2020, they vanished despite still running to the old timetable.
I can’t have another year with this data missing - I thinking of whiting to the Mayor as having this data missing from the API that feed transit apps makes the Central Line Hainault Loop appear closed / not running services, and thus not recommeneded as a route.
