TR0142 : Railway east of Ashford International station

taken 1 year ago, near to Ashford, Kent, Great Britain

Railway east of Ashford International station
Railway east of Ashford International station
Looking east from the east end of platform 6, towards Folkestone and Dover; a little way ahead, the line to Ramsgate via Canterbury West diverges to the left, while the line to Hastings swings off to the right. The high speed line to the Channel Tunnel bypasses the station on the viaduct to the left; international services that stop here have to leave it to do so, then rejoin. Both of the UK's standard electrification systems - 25kV 50Hz AC overhead and 750V DC third rail - are present here: international services use the former; domestic services using the high speed line switch between the two here (overhead on the high speed line, third rail to and from the east); other domestic services are third rail only or (in the case of services using the non electrified Hastings line) diesel.
