Our local paper the Sorry Error, whoops, Surrey Mirror published these aerial photos of the London Bridge rebuilding project. This rebuild will increase the capacity of the through tracks that feed the Thameslink lines through to north London. It will no doubt be a good thing, but the present disruption to commuters is pretty extreme. The Shard looks pretty impressive over part of the station concourse.
For us modellers, we are unlikely to aspire to modelling London Bridge in any form, although the through lines past the old Ewer Street stabling point, and the smaller terminals at Cannon Street and Holborn Viaduct could appeal. However, these shots remind us what good prototypes urban railways can make, squeezed into the available space and winding their way – in this case on viaduct – between the buildings.
