TQ3079 : Windsor Lines at Waterloo Station, 1987

near to City of London, Great Britain

Windsor Lines at Waterloo Station, 1987
Windsor Lines at Waterloo Station, 1987
Platforms 16 to 21 were called the Windsor Lines at London's Waterloo Station and were physically a separate part of the main station - although this was barely apparent to most passengers. From these platforms trains went to Windsor and to Reading where, again, a separate part of the main (Western Region)station accommodated these (Southern Region) trains.
In the 1990s this part of Waterloo was demolished and was replaced by the two-level Eurostar terminus.
In November,2007, events will turn a full circle when the Eurostar terminus moves to the newly renovated St Pancras Station, leaving this part of Waterloo to revert to ordinary suburban traffic.
The clock shows the time to be quarter to two - this photograph would have been impossible a few hours earlier (and in the late afternoon) when the platforms would be invisible under the feet of the hundreds of commuters (me included).
