End of the line at Chessington South from Garrison Lane bridge
End of the line at Chessington South from Garrison Lane bridge
Not leaves on the line, but trees on the line! The Electric Southern Railway reached Chessington in 1939 with the intention that the line would be extended to Leatherhead. The plan was suspended on the outbreak of WW2 and not resumed thereafter; however evidence of railway embankment work may be seen for some distance south of Chessington South station.
