Chessington South station from above
Seen here from Garrison Lane bridge across the south end of the station, Chessington South is the terminus of a suburban branch line from Motspur Park (on the line from Epsom to the South Western main line at Raynes Park). It was opened in 1939 to serve the growing suburbs of south west London; the styling of the stations is very much of its time, particularly the curved concrete platform canopies visible here. A pair of South West Trains' class 455 EMUs is forming a service to London Waterloo; from above, the different roof profile of the ex class 508 trailer car in the class 455/7 unit nearer to the camera is obvious.
