TQ3185 : Northwards from Drayton Park

Northwards from Drayton Park
Northwards from Drayton Park
Overshadowed now by the enormous Emirates Stadium of Arsenal Football Club, this shows the tracks at the north end of Drayton Park station, looking towards Finsbury Park. Until 1975, the tracks entered tunnels here to reach underground platforms at Finsbury Park. The line was at that time part of London Transport's Northern Line, and plans had been made for the tracks to surface here and be extended via Finsbury Park to East Finchley, Alexandra Palace, Edgware, and Bushey Heath. World War II intervened to prevent this plan ever being carried out, but in 1976 the line between Finsbury Park and Moorgate, the southern terminus, was transferred to British Railways, being served by full-size rolling stock from such places as Hertford North and New Barnet. These services still remain, now worked by First Capital Connect.
