Accessible London - Elizabeth Line (formerly Crossrail).

All the London railway stations :

On Tuesday, May 24th 2022, the first section of the Elizabeth Line officially opened.
I have visited this line on numerous occasions, and it is always a good experience.
These are the main sections which are now fully operational in 2024.
Section 1 starts from Shenfield, in Essex, travels via Whitechapel, and on to Paddington.
Section 2 is from Abbey Wood, again via Whitechapel, and Paddington; and onwards to either the Heathrow Terminals, or onto Reading (via West Drayton).
Both of these two sections run separately along the same lines, and via teh same stations, under central London.

There are also sporadic trains on the Great Anglia line which mainly run between Liverpool street, and Shenfield.
Shenfield, Brentwood, Harold Wood, Gidea Park, Romford, Chadwell Heath, Goodmayes, Seven Kings, Ilford, Manor Park, Forest Gate, Maryland/a>, Stratford, Whitechapel, Liverpool street (Moorgate), Farringdon, Tottenham Court road, Bond street, Paddington .

The section of the Elizabeth Line from Abbey Wood is
Abbey Wood station to Paddington, via Woolwich, Custom House, Canary Wharf, Whitechapel, Liverpool street (Moorgate), Farringdon, Tottenham Court road, Bond street, Paddington , Acton Main Line, Ealing Broadway, West Ealing, Hanwell, Southall, Hayes and Harlington, Heathrow Terminals - or Reading (via West Drayton).

Trains run on the two sections about every ten minutes; with alternating trains, so a train runs every five minutes at the following list of stations; and trains stop, at the identical platform for Whitechapel, Liverpool street, Farringdon, Tottenham Court road, and Bond street, and maybe Paddington.
All stations are very accessible, with lifts, and many escalators, but some stations are now very large because of this, and footfall can be excessive for the weary traveller. I am attempting to find distances that you need to walk at the different stations.
No boarding ramp is needed at the following stations as there is level access from platform to trains: Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, Canary Wharf, Custom House (carriage 5 only), Woolwich and Heathrow.
If you need step-free access at any station on the Elizabeth line, it's best to board at carriage 5 where there are dedicated wheelchair spaces, whether you need a manual boarding ramp or not. Carriage 5 generally stops at the middle of the platform.
