TQ3181 : South end of Farringdon station

taken 5 years ago, near to London, City of London, Great Britain

South end of Farringdon station
South end of Farringdon station
Looking south into the tunnel that takes the Thameslink line under Smithfield Markets from near the point at which this line diverged from the "widened lines" to Moorgate. To accommodate longer trains on this very heavily used line, it was necessary to extend the platforms at Farringdon across the junction (extension of the platforms at the other end proving impracticable), thus severing the link to Moorgate. On the left, in front of the signal, the CCTV monitors provided so that train drivers can check that the doors are clear can be seen. Farringdon is the point at which trains switch between the two main line electrification systems used in Britain, hence the provision of both 25kV AC overhead wires and 750V DC third rails.
