Worship Street Sidings - A good deal of the container traffic was probably meat for Spitalfields Market, take the last half mile or so by road. See EAW011141

Wagon Hoist to drop wagons down to the lower yard below the arches and to the west of the viaduct.

There are four white painted buffer stops at the end of short locomotive sidings use by engines awaiting their next train on the rapid turn-round 'Jazz' suburban service operated out of Liverpool Street.

Much of the glass is missing from the roof both here at Liverpool Street and next door at Broad Street.

Just to the north of this section of the North London Railway, the viaduct has now become part of the Overground from Dalston Junction to New Cross. This new line turns off the east to Shoreditch High Street station. Nearly all the NLR land that can be seen in this picture has been take over by mostly commercial high rise development.

North London Line electric train leaving Broad Street. How do I know it is leaving? It has an oil tail lamp on the back. You may ask why electric trains ran with oil tail lamps until for over sixty years? If the power supply went down the light would go out as there were no batteries in the circuit for the light to draw power. And, on a mixed railway if the train power supply went down it did not mean other trains (steam could and late diesel) could not be on the move, leaving a stranded electric train with no visual rear protection. From around the mid 1980s better on board supply allowed fixed electric lights at the back of electric trains to become standard, so saving the use of hundreds of oil lamps and all the time it took to manage and position them.

Semaphore signals with white backboards to improve sighting against a confusing background.
