Class 313 train at Drayton Park station
Drayton Park station has an interesting history. Originally built by the Metropolitan Railway, the Great Northern and City line was built to take full-size rolling stock from an underground station at Finsbury Park to Moorgate. In 1933 it passed to London Transport, who worked the line with tube trains. In the mid-1970s the northern end at Finsbury Park was altered to join the surface lines, and British Railways took over the line, using these dual-voltage trains.
