The 1915 Abandoned Platform


Having decended the steps we can again see signs on the right of trial patches of tiles.

The new lighting units for the Jubilee Line Extention have been tried out in this view

(looking towards the bufferstops)

The cross passage can also be clearly seen (painted green).

Having been abandoned very early the track does not have the anti-suicide pit so characterisic of the modern underground. As the track has been lifted through the tunnel towards Holborn there is no risk from the middle rail which used to carry electricity.
