<h4><a href='/locations/C/Catford'>Catford</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/S/Shortlands_and_Nunhead_Railway'>Shortlands and Nunhead Railway</a></small></p><p>376009, heading to London Cannon Street, calls at the rebuilt Catford station on the 1892 Catford Loop, on 26th September 2009. 1/7</p><p>26/09/2009<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/C/Charlton_NKR'>Charlton [NKR]</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/N/North_Kent_Railway'>North Kent Railway</a></small></p><p>376006, heading for Dartford via Woolwich Arsenal, at Charlton on 26th September 2009. This station opened with the North Kent Line on 30th July 1849, which diverged from London's first railway, the London & Greenwich of 1836, south-east of London Bridge and pursued a roundabout route through Lewisham and Blackheath before returning to the south bank of the Thames at Charlton. Greenwich was left as a terminus until 1st January 1873 when the line was extended to Maze Hill, then a further extension on 1st February 1878 which joined the North Kent Line west of Charlton. This then offered a shorter route to London from the North Kent stations east of Charlton via Greenwich but trains also continued to run via Lewisham as they still do to this day. 2/7</p><p>26/09/2009<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/P/Plumstead'>Plumstead</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/N/North_Kent_Railway'>North Kent Railway</a></small></p><p>376013, on an up train, arriving at Plumstead station in south-east London on 26th September 2009. 3/7</p><p>26/09/2009<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/C/Catford_Bridge'>Catford Bridge</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/M/Mid-Kent_Railway'>Mid-Kent Railway</a></small></p><p>376012 on the rear of a Charing Cross to Hayes (Kent) train, departing from Catford Bridge, south London, on 16th February 2019. This station opened with the Mid-Kent Line from Lewisham to Beckenham Junction on 1st January 1857 and is a stone's throw from Catford station on the 1892 Catford Loop (see my photo image no. 81247), on a viaduct out of view to the right and which line crosses above the Mid-Kent line just to the south of Catford Bridge station. 4/7</p><p>16/02/2019<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/W/Waterloo_East'>Waterloo East</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/C/Charing_Cross_Railway'>Charing Cross Railway</a></small></p><p>376019 with 376012, from Charing Cross to Hayes (Kent), arriving at its first stop at Waterloo East station on 16th February 2019.  This station was opened as Waterloo Junction on the Charing Cross Railway of 1864, on 1st January 1869, replacing the 1864 Blackfriars station just to the east, to provide better interchange with the LSWR's Waterloo terminus of 1848. Initially a rail connection linked the two but the bridge across Waterloo Road was later converted into a footbridge and the rail link severed. The station was renamed Waterloo in conjunction with the ex-LSWR terminus on 7th July 1935 and was further renamed Waterloo East on 2nd May 1977. There is a pedestrian escalator and subway connection from this station to LUL's Southwark station on the Jubilee Line Extension, opened in 1999.   Part of the London Eye, a.k.a. the Millennium Wheel, can be seen in the top right background. 5/7</p><p>16/02/2019<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/L/Ladywell'>Ladywell</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/M/Mid-Kent_Railway'>Mid-Kent Railway</a></small></p><p>376005, with a service to Hayes (Kent), arriving at Ladywell station in south-east London on 16th February 2019.  This is a fairly well-used London suburban station, being closer to Lewisham Hospital than the main Lewisham station. 6/7</p><p>16/02/2019<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p> <h4><a href='/locations/A/Abbey_Wood'>Abbey Wood</a></h4><p><small><a href='/companies/N/North_Kent_Railway'>North Kent Railway</a></small></p><p>376024 at the rear of a South Eastern service to Sidcup departing  from Abbey Wood in south-east London, on 15th July 2021. On the left, behind the fence that infuriatingly obscures the view, is the as yet unopened Crossrail terminus. Abbey Wood was originally opened on 30th July 1849 by the North Kent Railway and completely rebuilt and enlarged to cater for Crossrail in the second decade of the 21st Century. In anticipation of the opening of Crossrail in December 2018, the rebuilt National Rail station opened on 23rd October 2017 but there is still no firm date as to when the first Crossrail trains will operate. 7/7</p><p>15/07/2021<br><small><a href='/contributors/David_Bosher'>David Bosher</a></small></p>
