TQ2590 : Weekend Line and Station Closures

taken 4 years ago, near to Finchley, Barnet, Great Britain

Weekend Line and Station Closures
Weekend Line and Station Closures
That's the title of the email notifications sent out every Thursday by Transport for London to advise of planned engineering works. October 5th/6th and 12th/13th would see the High Barnet Branch of the Northern Line closed two weekends in a row for track replacement at Finchley Central and East Finchley. An extensive network of rail replacement buses was provided.

In the photo, London Underground battery loco L45 sits stands with a train of ballast on the Barnet branch tracks at Finchley Central whilst two ro-rail excavators wait on the Mill Hill East tracks in preparation for returning to the station area where the work was being carried out. Battery locomotives normally operate in pairs, top and tailing the train - L20 was on the other end of the ballast train.
