  East London Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The East London Line is a line of the London Underground, coloured orange on the Tube map.
The opening of the Docklands Light Railway provided a new connection for the East London Line at Shadwell (although the tube and DLR stations are 50 m apart and the interchange is via the street), and in 1999 a new station, Canada Water, was opened to connect with the Jubilee Line Extension.
Trains on the East London Line used to be operated with guards as well as a driver; the decision to withdraw the guards prompted an unsuccessful strike on the line in May 1985.

The East London Line is the only LU line that was planned and built as a main-line railway, but its history goes much further back than that.
In 1884 the line was leased to a consortium of the five (six from 1885) companies using it, and in 1925 it was transferred to the Southern Railway (which had absorbed three of the six lessors), who immediately leased it back to the consortium.
The line is currently operated by 4-car A stock trains (using units with both cabs equipped); these are part of the Metropolitan Line fleet and exchanged with that line on a regular basis.
