East Croydon railway station
East Croydon railway station
East Croydon is a major rail hub in south London, connected by high-speed services to London Bridge, Clapham Junction and Victoria. In 1992, British Rail replaced the Victorian brick-built station, spanning the lines, with this cantilevered steel-and-glass construction. The design avoided the need to replace the bridge carrying the road over the railway. Further measures to keep down costs included use of the old platforms, ramps and even the iron columns holding up the awnings - although these were disguised with cladding. Just to the right of the station is the former postal sorting office. On the extreme right of the picture is the NLA Tower - known locally as the "threepenny bit building".
