Petts Wood: Up Bickley Loop
Petts Wood: Up Bickley Loop
The Up and Down Bickley Loops were constructed when the former rival London, Chatham and Dover and South Eastern Railways merged in 1899 to form the South Eastern and Chatham Railway. Previously the two railways had crossed over one another near Chislehurst, so the newly merged railway rapidly built a junction between the two lines, enabling London-bound and coast-bound trains to cross over from one constituent railway to the other. On the left is the start of the Up Bickley Loop line that was built in 1902 and enabled London-bound trains on the former South Eastern Railway track to cross over and head towards London using the lines of the former London, Chatham and Dover Railway. The main line of the former South Eastern Railway can be seen on the right, with the incoming Down Bickley Loop on the far right.

There is a fine example of a set of diamond points in the foreground.
