Leaving for Kensington Olympia, Clapham Junction 1966
This was an odd service, as it was completely unadvertised. It operated a couple each of morning and afternoon peak period journeys, principally to serve the Post Office Savings Bank headquarters near Olympia, using the West London Extension Railway line. In recent years the line has become an integral part of the London Overground network, with a frequent service operating between Clapham Junction and Willesden Junction.
Clapham Junction Station

Clapham Junction opened in 1863. The station is located in Battersea not Clapham. Many routes from London's two busiest termini, London Waterloo and Victoria, funnel through the station making it one of the busiest in Europe by number of trains using it, more than one hundred an hour outside peak periods.
