Tracing The Goblin Extension – The Alternative Route From Wimbledon To Peckham Rye

This is what I called the Alternative Route in the post, where I laid out possible routes.

It goes a slightly shorter way and avoids changing direction at Wimbledon.

Incidentally, I found out today that Platform 9 at Wimbledon has trains that stop there running in both directions.

The train I got from there today, actually waited for a few minutes, so it might be a place, where a train could wait if necessary.

The only problem on the route was that I had a Peckham Rye style change at Tulse Hill.  I doubt that a couple with a baby in a buggy could negotiate the two staircases easily. Something of course that won’t be necessary with the Goblin Extension, as the trains will just circulate continuously.
