The New Overground Line To Clapham Junction

I took these pictures today, whilst walking from Surrey Quays station to SELCHP.


  1. How the track for the new branch, runs between SELCHP and the fence along the route I walked.
  2. A couple of trains have been seen travelling along the line. One may have passed me, but I’m not sure.
  3. It would appear that the new bridge over Surrey Canal Road, has been designed to be incorporated into any proposed Surrey Canal Road station. I actually met a guy with his dalmatian by the station and he and/or a neighbour could remember Surrey Canal Road as the Grand Surrey Canal. The neighbour could also remember troop trains going by over the old line, that was dismantled in the 1960s or 1970s.
  4. The proximity of the New Den to the proposed station.
  5. The new line has an out of station interchange at Clapham High Street station with Clapham North station on the Northern line. It would make it easy for anybody in my area to get to the Tooting area, although I think that Clapham North station is not the best.

One thing that would appear to be certain, s that opening the line this year, is not an outrageous boast.
