No - you are confusing the Circle line with the Hammersmith & City line!!
The services this weekend will be:
Circle - Kings Cross to Tower Hill via Victoria, then extended to & from Whitechapel
Hammersmith & City line - Hammersmith to Edgware Road
There will be early morning & late evening C stock workings to & from Barking, but these are really only for the purposes of getting trains to & from the sidings and are not really to be counted as part of the service being provided.
Interesting one this weekend. No doubt Mr mrfs42 will have some idea what they're trying out ;D
The works affecting the Circle and H&C are cross-rail works at Moorgate. So nothing can go further east than King's Cross, and nothing come any further west than Aldgate East onto the H&C.
In past suspensions of this kind, a simple Hammersmith-King's Cross service would have been sufficient, with the Circle suspended entirely and the Districts covering the Edgware Road-High Street Ken route.
Anyway, I'm sure they have their reasons. Makes for variety I suppose ;D
I was on a Circle from Kings Cross to Tower Hill. From Kings Cross to Gloucester Road, the driver kept saying "This is a Circle Line train all the way round" And then at Gloucester Road, the driver said "the destination of this train had been changed. This train will now terminate at Whitechapel"
Do you think it was alright for him to say between KX and GR that the train would be going all the way roudnd?

They do it all the time on SWT's and Thameslink's circular services. Otherwise you'd have trains at Vauxhall going in both directions to Waterloo from opposite faces of the same platform - one taking 5 minutes, the other taking 68!
