Aggregate train from Angerstein Wharf
Aggregate train from Angerstein Wharf
The freight branch to Angerstein Wharf dates from 1852, and once served up to 14 different private sidings handling a huge variety of traffic. It now only serves the Day Aggregates terminal (ref: "Greenwich Marsh - the 300 years before the Dome", M.Mills,ISBN 0 9535245 0 7). Shot from a public foot crossing of the line that gives access to Westcombe Park station via a footbridge over the A102. The graffiti-covered control cabinet indicates that this is not a remote rural location!
