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.

Battery locomotive L52 stands on the southbound tracks as old ballast is replaced by new on the northbound line. The closest excavator is unloading fresh ballast from the wagons which is distributed along the track bed by the dumpster in the foreground. The second excavator is loading the discarded old ballast into wagons that have already been unloaded. The bridge in the distance carries Prospect Place over the line.
