A digest of the main changes on Network Rail, London Underground and Northern Ireland Railways infrastructure during January 2020; compiled by Martyn Brailsford of the Branch Line Society (www.branchline.uk).
January, as is the norm, was a quiet month, however alterations took place at a number of locations, including Claydon LN&E Junction and Norwich Victoria Sidings.
Ripple Lane Area (2:4A)
As part of the Barking Riverside project, Ripple Lane West Yard Siding 3 has now been removed.
Due to the introduction of new rolling stock, new ‘S Car’ marker boards at Dullingham (10M 54ch) have been introduced, these have altered the operational lengths of the platforms. Platform 1 now has an operational length of 85 metres (93 yards). Platform 2 now has an operational length of 80 metres (88 yards) in the Up direction, whilst the boards in the Down direction remain unaltered (77 metres/84 yards).
