Up exchange freight for the Midland line passing London Bridge (Eastern Section)
Up exchange freight for the Midland line passing London Bridge (Eastern Section)
View SE, towards the SE London suburbs and Kent. One of the numerous inter-regional cross-London exchange freight trains is headed for the LMR (ex-Midland) lines - probably Cricklewood Brent Sidings - via Blackfriars Bridge and the Metropolitan Widened Line. Headed by LMS Fowler 0-6-0T No. 47642, it will probably have come from Hither Green Yard and is running on the No 5 Through road at London Bridge (East). Since those days this bottleneck at London Bridge (East) was eased partially in 1978 by the provision of an extra Up platform - and these inter-regional freights had ceased by 1969 anyway.
