East London Line extension and refurbishment pictures

February 22nd, 2010 (05:30 pm)

Those who like me have an interest in changes in the urban landscape, particularly transport-related, might like to know that London Reconnections has some images of new stations on London Overground's East London Line extension, and of refurbished stations on the section which was part of London Underground until it closed at the end of 2007.

My pleasure! I remember going through the Thames Tunnel in 1998 after the East London Line reopened last time it was closed for refurbishment, and hope to find time in the spring to do part of the Dalston Junction-New Cross/West Croydon/Crystal Palace run.

I really want to ride it myself. Any chance of a meet?

Yes! I think it all opens in April or May, with running only as far south as New Cross Gate/New Cross at first, and then running through from New Cross Gate to West Croydon or Crystal Palace a few weeks later.

Let me know when you're coming - as I live in London and am not employed I'm very flexible.
