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 L54 stands in the turn-round siding at East Finchley with a train of old ballast that has been removed from the northbound running line - L15 is visible at the other end of the train. East Finchley Station is visible in the distance. The discarded track sections were being uploaded to a truck in the station Carpark, which was sealed off for the weekend and given over to staff parking and ancillary vehicles associated with the work.
