There's plenty of railway infrastructure on view here in this photograph taken from the station footbridge, and in a slightly different location to Stephen's TQ5276 : Slade Green rail depot. Slade Green depot is straight ahead with the line to Dartford running through it while the line to Barnehurst station curves away from the junction and round to the right. The circular plate with the number 20 and an arrow above informs train drivers of a speed restriction when taking the Barnehurst line, while the oblong box in the centre of the right hand tracks is an AWS (Automatic Warning System) inductor, which warns the train driver about the aspect of the next signal. (As an aside Mrs Albion thought that fact was quite interesting but not very interesting!). Finally at the bottom of the platform ramps there used to be a level crossing where Whitehall Lane / Moat Lane crossed the railway. Nowadays the only road access into Slade Green from the west is via Bridge Road. This is the reverse view to TQ5276 : Slade Green railway station (1).
