The Anonymous Widower

Tottenham Hale Station – 1st October 2018

These pictures show the progress being made at Tottenham Hale station.


  1. The third platform at Tottenham Hale station is taking shape.
  2. The steelwork is up for the lift towers.
  3. A lot of the third track and the electrification is in place.

I am also coming to a couple of conclusions.

  • There appears to be enough space alongside the third track to insert a fourth.
  • The Ferry Lane road bridge though may need to be rebuilt to get the fourth track through.

Progess also appears to be in-line with completion of the station and the third track before the end of 2019.

A Greater Anglia Train In An Unexpected Place

I took these pictures from Drayton Park station of a Greater Anglia train, which  consisted of a Class 90 locomotive, Mark 3 coaches and a DVT going South on the line above the station that leads to the Canonbury Curve.

I wonder what it had been doing?
