City 2 Coast trains on this route also serve the eastern London boroughs, stopping at Upminster, Barking and West Ham, connecting passengers with the London Underground network at all these stops. With express trains taking under an hour to reach Fenchurch Street, it has become a popular route for those looking to move out of London and travel in, as well as becoming an important asset for the local Essex tourism.
