Gallery 781: Docklands Light Railway - 30th November 2018

View from 57 about to descend to the former North London Railway alignment at Bow. On the right is the now singled link from Bow junction on the Liverpool Street line to Gas Factory junction on the Fenchurch Street line which opened in 1849 and closed to passengers 100 years later in 1949 but is electrified for empty stock working purposes and occasional diversions. On this section are the derelict remains of the platforms of Bow Road station, added to the spur in 1892 and closed with this section at the same time, while the remains of the stairwell to the down platform on the west side can be seen from the busy Bow Road itself. The former station entrance also survives on the east side and is now a licensed betting office. Across the road, almost opposite, is the London Underground Bow Road station, still open for the District and Hammersmith & City Lines, opened in 1902, the entrance of which has been a Grade II Listed Structure by English Heritage since 1973. It is shown on LU diagrams as an interchange with the DLR's Bow Church station but the two are totally separate, interchange passengers needing to walk the short distance between the two along Bow Road itself.
