Northern line Gallery 1

1959 Stock at Charing Cross in August 1995. The guard can (just!) be seen at the front of the rear car to ensure that the train safely leaves the platform. If you hover your mouse cursor over this image, you will see one taken almost twenty years later, in June 2015.

High Barnet station in December 2008.

1995 Stock Driving Motor Car 51671 at High Barnet.

A new train crew depot was under construction at High Barnet in December 2008.

Mornington Crescent station was closed between October 1992 and April 1998 in order for the then 85-year-old lifts to be replaced. During the stationís closure, the original platform tiling was also replaced.

A return to Charing Cross almost twenty years after the picture at the top of this page was taken - the modern view is from June 2015. If you hover your mouse cursor over the picture below, it will change to the one taken in August 1995. I have to say that I felt very strange indeed when recreating this picture - I think it was just the thought of standing at more or less the same place that did this.

The Northern line concourse at Bank underwent expansion in early 2022, with a new southbound platform opening in May. Hoardings remained in place along parts of the new passageway between the new platform and the existing northbound platform until much later in the year; these concealed accesses to new escalator links leading to the Central line and Docklands Light Railway.

What had been the original southbound platform and running lines now formed part of the concourse between north and southbound. This door at the northern end of the former southbound line provides access to the now-disused running tunnel.
