377213 with a northbound train at Shepherds Bush on 29th December 2008

Our intrepid photographer thinks Shepherds Bush is far too far north of the Thames so bails out there! One 29th December 377213 is about to depart north from the new station there. Note the narrow platform which lead to Network Rail delaying the opening of this station.

Platform indicator at Shepherds Bush

The platform indicator at Shepherds Bush (platform 2) showing for the southbound working a noticeable gap between West Brompton and Streatham Common stations. Like the on-train destination indicators these are notoriously difficult to photograph and this was the only readable picture out of many attempts! With the approaching 12.20 hrs to East Croydon just coming into sight the train's platform was suddenly altered requiring many passengers to rush across to platform 1 via the lengthy and convoluted footbridge.
