Clapham Junction

That Clapham Junction is the busiest station in Britain is a well known fact. As well as passenger traffic, however, Clapham also handled a lot of goods and ECS workings in its extensive yard.
 
Clapham Yard

An overview of Clapham Yard in November 1966. A fine collection of passenger vehicles is in evidence, most of which would be out of a job the following July!

New Platform

A new platform/bay being constructed for use by Overground trains and due to come into use December 2012 when the new service from the East London line to Clapham Junction via the South London line starts. There is a reinstated section of line (closed circa WW1) from the ELL to the SLL that is already in place and the service will go from Factory Junction via one of the Latchmere Junctions and Ludgate Junction to the new platform. The train visible in what we think is now platform 1 is an Overground train to Kensington Olympia, Willesden and Stratford. The EMU is a London Overground Class 378 Capitalstar Nº 378 225.
