London Bridge Status September 2016
Following the significant change to London Bridge in late August with a large amount of the street level concourse opening, trains to and from Charing Cross resuming calling and the transfer to Three Bridges ROC of the signalling from London Bridge to Charing Cross and Cannon Street, September 2016 saw trains running to and from Cannon Street having their turn running through.
Our London Bridge Correspondent Colin Price visited during the morning peak of 15th September.
(above) 465185 and 465171 working the 06:37 Barnehurst to Cannon Street running into and through platform 6, currently the Up Cannon Street line (see later for its future redeployment).
(below) 465011 leading 465197 and 465177 working 06:30 Orpington to Cannon Street swing over the slew from the Up Cannon St line (previously 2 reversible) towards the new platform 6. The 376s in the distance are on the Up Charing Cross line. The train is coming over the fringe between the new Three Bridges ROC (single yellow signal to the right of the Networker cab) and the old London Bridge box (single yellow signal to the left on the gantry behind). From here everything through to Cannon Street and Charing Cross is controlled by Three Bridges, with the exception of the Met Reversible line from outside Cannon Street round towards Blackfriars.
(above) 465009 leads 465032 through what will be platform 5 working the 07:10 Cannon Street roundabout working. Behind the hoardings on the right the last part of the London Bridge station rebuilding takes place.
(below) 376007 and 376009 working the 07:17 Cannon St to Dartford come over the new slew from the Down Cannon St line towards platform 5. In the final layout the track on platform 6 will follow the platform edge and become a Down Charing Cross platform.
|Back to part of the high level station where trains currently stop (one hopes ALL trains into the low level station stop!) - 375820 leads 375608 (in blue livery) into platform 7 working the 07:15 Charing Cross to Hastings.|
