I think versions of this very detailed French rail map of London have
I've not spotted any errors yet.
It doesn't show the old terminus at Enfield Chase just west of the
current station, or Carterhatch Lane Halt, or Spa Road station, or
I'm not quite sure what's going on south of the J in Kew East
Junction... is that correct? The catch points would be more likely on
the northbound line, and why would there be a crossover there at all?
Google shows too many trees to know. My Quail for that area is 15
years old, but shows none of that.
Other old and removed facilities are missing too. There used to be a
crossover north of East Putney for example. The Midland freight depot at
High St Ken is missing too, as well as (I think) the southernmost, east
facing, bay at South Kensington.
Also, did pre-1938 Aldgate East really have separate District and
Metropolitan (now H&C) platforms?
It also shows the West Anglia (labelled "Suburban") lines out of Liverpool
St and through Bethnal Green and stations to Cheshunt as Overground only.
They are shared with GA, though services are limited north of Bethnal Green
North Junction. Nearly all West Anglia trains use the lines through Bethnal
Green to and from Liverpool St.
It also shows no access from the GW Main Line to North Pole Depot which I'm
sure is out of date.
It shows no SWT access to platform 3 at Richmond. I'm sure that was still
there when I went there last year. Has it been removed recently?
No doubt others will spot more.
