Not at all - if you stand by the GOBLIN or the North London Line for any length of time you're still quite likely to see freight as things stand.

I think that during the Olympics the intention is to more or less eliminate freight from the NLL. As a minimum, I understand that they want to keep the key stretch from Stratford to Camden Road free.

Some of it is going down the GOBLIN, but the rest has to go up through Ely etc as there isn't anywhere else it can actually go.

What exactly is still going around London as i thought most containers for the NE and NW already routed across Pborough and on to Nuneaton to the WCML

GBRf runs their services via Peterborough currently. Once the Nuneaton North Chord is complete, Freightliner will divert various services that way aswell but whether the current electric services will become diesel and diverted or stay as is I don't know.
