London Bridge And Dalston Junction With A Reverse At New Cross

This may seem to be a strange route to go to my home from London Bridge station, but it’s a route I regularly use as it is step-free and it avoids the vagaries of the 141 bus route which can mean waiting longer than necessary at the bus station at London Bridge.

  • I went to Platform 1 at London Bridge and got the first train to New Cross, which was waiting in the station.
  • On arrival at New Cross, I walked across the platform and waited perhaps three minutes for the London Overground train for Dalston Junction to arrive.
  • I then went two stops from Dalston Junction to outside my house.

I took these pictures along the route.

  1. My local service used to call at New Cross Gate allowing a convenient transfer to LO to get across to East London but no longer does since Thameslink took over the route. They even spent a fortune at NXG installing access for all facilities between all platforms but the island platforms are no longer regularly used. The railway needs to massively improve its connectivity credentials if we are to drive modal shift away from cars.Pleased that New Cross maintains connectivity.

    • I also lost a Gatwick connection.
      I changed both ways at Norwood Junction. That station is going to be rebuilt with full step-free access and I suspect it will improve things.

      I think it will also mean that by swapping to the Overground, you will be able to get to the Lizzie Line at Whitechapel.
