Already discussed on the Bakerloo thread, but worthy of its own, is the news that the mothballed High Level Station at Brockley, which used to serve passengers as Brockley Lane, may one day be brought back in to use as part of the 2050 London infrastructure vision document unveiled by the Mayor this week.

In the small print of one of the supporting documents is a list of stations that could be brought back into use as part of a new orbital rail route around the capital. Brockley is named as one of the stations that could be upgraded for £25 million to link it up to a loop, taking passengers east / west across London.

The line is currently used by freight trains and passing commuter services, but passengers have not been able to alight there since 1917. Brockley Cross Action Group have for years campaigned for the station to be brought back into use.
