Crew Changeover point at Central Station

CT Clapton
Crew Changeover point at Hackney Central stand

EC Edmonton
Crew Changeover point was initially Cogan Avenue Estate stand - but due to complaints about ferry vehicles etc. this got changed around 2007 to have only a few morning and evening duties change at Cogan - the majority then shifted to Leytonstone station - with drivers taking relief in the LUL Central Line drivers canteen/output.
