Tracing The Goblin Extension – Wimbledon To Norwood Junction

This part of the route was fairly straightforward even though in this exercise it was three separate trains.

  1. Wimbledon to Sutton
  2. Sutton to West Croydon
  3. West Croydon to Norwood Junction

Obviously, the Goblin Extension will do it without changes, by a direct route.

As an exercise, I tried to see what National Rail Train Enquiries said about how you get from Wimbledon to Norwood Junction. Some routes it gives are of the if-you-want-to-go-there-I-wouldnt-start-from-here variety, with up to two changes in a forty minute journey.

So perhaps one of Transport for London’s objectives is to simplify the rail routes in South London.
