172 005 with a London Overground GOBLIN service to Gospel Oak approaching Leytonstone High Road, known as simply Leytonstone until 1949. The train is on the ex-Tottenham & Forest Gate Railway viaduct, extending from Woodgrange Park to Walthamstow Queens Road. This scene has changed with the installation of masts and overhead wires although passengers are still waiting for the full service of new electric trains, promised over a year ago. As of now, the service has been cut to half-hourly with class 378 e.m.u.s brought in as temporary replacements.
