TQ4078 : Railway junctions west of Charlton

taken 6 years ago, near to Charlton, Greenwich, Great Britain

Railway junctions west of Charlton
Railway junctions west of Charlton
The four near tracks have split from two at a junction just behind the camera position. The right pair take the direct route to London Bridge via Greenwich, the left pair are a connection to a route via Blackheath and Lewisham. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the crossover and single track turning right off the left hand tracks. This is Angerstein Junction for a freight only branch to Angerstein Wharf. Remarkably it is still in use for imported (probably dredged) aggregate traffic.
