Disused Network Rail platforms at East Putney
Disused Network Rail platforms at East Putney
East Putney is the junction of the London Underground District line and the Network Rail (formerly London and South Western Railway) link from the Windsor lines to the South Western main line near Wimbledon. The latter is now single track and is only normally used for empty stock workings to and from East Wimbledon depot, hence the overgrown state of the far platform. For a good many years, the line between here and Wimbledon was owned by British Rail despite the passenger train service being provided almost exclusively by the Underground, hence the Network SouthEast signage and decor in TQ2474 : Trains meet at East Putney station, 1994. By 2007, ownership of the line from here to a point just south of Wimbledon Park station had passed to the Underground, although in 2014 it was still signalled by Network Rail equipment controlled from Wimbledon.
