SR 'King Arthur' class 4-6-0 at London Bridge (Eastern)
View NW from Platform 5, towards Cannon Street and Charing Cross on the main SE&CR lines to Southeast London and Kent. Maunsell N15 class No. 30806 'Sir Galleron' (built - the last - 1/27, withdrawn 4/61) is running Light Engine up No 5 Through line to take an express from one of the termini. Behind is a suburban EMU at Platform 4. In 1949 all the tremendous traffic to/from Charing Cross/Cannon Street/Blackfriars - including freight for the Metropolitan Widened Lines, was squeezed onto just four tracks from here to Borough Market Junction, then briefly two to Cannon Street West Junction: it is only now (2012) that extra lines are being built, on a new viaduct in the Thameslink Programme.
