The tour departing south towards Streatham Tulse Hill is one of those areas where the maze of lines in South London are readily apparent as seen in this and the photograph above. Here, as the tour heads south towards Streatham (and will shortly pass under the Streatham Hill to Crystal Palace line) the lines to the left go to Crystal Palace and the lines to the right to Streatham Hill.
