Original Post

I just noticed this morning in TravelGumbo News that Heathrow Express is cutting its fares because of competiton with train service that wasn't mentioned here. That's what used to be called Heathrow Connect, and is now called TfL Rail, and will soon be called the Elizabeth Line. It's only 15 minutes slower than the Express, and the price is the same as the Tube.

Both of those go only to Paddington Station in London, way in the West End, but once TfL Rail is connected to the new Crossrail project and becomes Elizabeth, it will have the advantage of continuing past Paddington to other stations in central and eastern parts of London without changing trains at Paddington.
