Waterloo - Basingstoke train pulling away from Clapham Junction, 1958
Waterloo - Basingstoke train pulling away from Clapham Junction, 1958
View northward from Battersea Rise bridge, towards Clapham Junction station and London (Waterloo and Victoria). The four ex-LSW tracks from Waterloo are on the left, those from Victoria on the right; the bridge ahead is St Johns Hill. Not many years before their electrification, in the final years the important 'commuter' services from Basingstoke were handed over from the traditional old LSWR engines to new BR Standard 4-6-0s: here we have Class 4MT 4-6-0 No. 75075 (built 11/55, withdrawn 7/67).
