Snow in South Norwood

Posted in England, South Norwood by folkestonejack on December 2, 2010

The snow has been in South Norwood for a few days now and the appeal has certainly worn off after a few chaotic commutes to London. The usual combination of frozen points, failed trains and overcrowding on the few trains running have all played their part in the experience. Roll on the spring summer!

On my walk to the station today to catch one of the few Southern services operating (an all stations shuttle service between East Croydon and London Bridge) I took a few shots of the local scene in South Norwood. Overall the area has not been as badly affected as in February 2009 but the heavy snow further south has certainly had quite an impact on services.
