Clapham Junction train crash memorial
Clapham Junction train crash memorial, taken 5 years ago
This remembers the dead and injured of the train crash on the tracks below to the left on 12 December 1988. Because of a botched wiring job on a resignalling project, trains were presented with false signal aspects. One train ran into the back of another and a third empty train hit one of the derailed trains. 35 died and hundreds were injured.
