TQ2289 : Southbound Slow Line at Silkstream Junction

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

Southbound Slow Line at Silkstream Junction
Southbound Slow Line at Silkstream Junction
Hidden amongst the foliage a southbound train looks to be running on a single track railway. But Silkstream Junction is where a six track mainline shrinks down to four tracks and the southbound slow line is separated from the northbound slow line to allow the freight tracks to join via a flyover which crosses the fast tracks.

This is First Capital Connect's Thameslink Class 319, 319370, on a St. Albans to Sutton via Wimbledon service. The trees are just starting to take on autumn colours. I doubt that the passengers are really aware of the adjacent M1 motorway as they pass through this shortly lived sylvan setting - next stop Hendon, which will bring them back to reality ;-)
