is so much going on around Abbey Wood station at the moment that there is a
danger that last week’s Crossrail developments west of Abbey Wood station will go unreported.
Not that the photos are particularly brilliant. Of five return journeys to Woolwich Arsenal since last weekend three have been ruined, photographically speaking, because the heavens opened at an inopportune time and train windows covered in rain drops proved to be totally incompatible with picture taking.
Then, Murphy’s Law, the view was twice obscured by a passing train. So there are no pictures of the yellow concreting train entering the Plumstead tunnels and the poor weather did not allow particularly good views of it in the Plumstead sidings. The low loader rail wagons were in the tunnel but are virtually invisible from a passing train.
Maybe I should buy a drone. But for Crossrail completists, these few are the best available.
