We have trains to London Bridge again!

So, as of Tuesday 2nd just gone, Greenwich trains are stopping at London Bridge again, which they haven't since 2013. These are Cannon Street trains - we still have to change for Charing Cross. But hey - we're eight minutes from London Bridge again!

Five new platforms have just opened at London Bridge station

And it's now easier to see where you are, and where's where, when you get off the train at the new London Bridge station, because of two new entrances/exits on Tooley Street, and because just one vast concourse links all 15 platforms - 'bigger than the pitch at Wembley' say Network Rail. The only downside I've heard is that some people would prefer the departure noticeboards to be amalgamated.

The whole £1bn revamp of the station won't be totally finished for some time yet, but the push over Christmas has made a big difference. 

One result of upgrades like this one at London Bridge is that Network Rail are selling off a lot of property to pay for them - so if you've ever wanted a railway arch, now's your chance!
