Lee Valley Railway Line
Lee Valley Railway Line
Old large scale Ordnance Survey maps available online give some indication of the pre-nationalisation history of this railway, as follows:-

1851: Eastern Counties Railway (Cambridge Line)
1865: Great Eastern Railway (Cambridge Line)
1895 & 1915: Great Eastern Railway (Cambridge Old Main Line)
1936: London & North Eastern Railway (Stratford & Tottenham Line)
1946: London & North Eastern Railway (Cambridge Old Main Line)

Just visible in the grass to the right is another set of tracks, now abandoned, that was once part of the long-dismantled Lea Bridge Curve that linked the 1895 railway here with the Great Eastern Railway's Walthamstow & Chingford Branch Line. Where the flooded track is now was the second line of this curve.

The train in sight has just left Lea Bridge Station and is heading northbound to Tottenham Hale Station.

This is the view from the Argall Way footbridge.
