Dorking Down Siding in Use

The down siding at Dorking (for those of us who prefer traditional station names, Dorking North!) was re-laid over a year ago but has seen little or no use since. However, in the morning peak on 18th December 2014 Ian Docwra sighted a train leaving the siding, 377612 being the rear unit of the ten car formation. 377601, on the right, was departing as the 08:58 to Victoria.
