Highbury & Islington is a busy interchange station in the Borough of Islington, north London. It sees Underground Victoria line, Overground, and National Rail services. This is the southbound platform of the Victoria line, with all trains running to Brixton. Train frequencies on the Victoria line are fantastic, with a train arriving every 1–2 minutes. The line uses automatic train operation (ATO), and is operated with 2009 Tube Stock. The Victoria line is a true rapid transport line. Northbound platform with a train for Walthamstow Central. One got to love how the train just flies into the station. The northbound platform seems rather busy and more difficult to film at. Adjacent to the Victoria line platforms, we have the platforms of the Northern City line, which are part of National Rail. This is a branch of the main line going into King’s Cross station. Trains on this line terminate at Moorgate. This line is less busy and rather moody; also note the old Network South East branding everywhere on the station. Trains are operated by “Thameslink and Great Northern”, and are formed of Class 313 coaches, which is the only stock certified for the tight tunnels on this line. At Finsbury Park the Northern City line joins the main Great Northern route and the East Coast Main Line. Another Class 313 stock approaching the station, however this seems to be an empty stock running. The remainder of the film is spent above ground. Highbury & Islington is also served by two lines of the London Overground network: The East London line (which terminates here) and the North London line. From the footbridge, one can get a great view over the station. The East London line runs between Croydon and this station. The approaching train will terminate here. The train that can be heard is on an adjacent platform. Same platform at the other end, with the train heading back on the East London line. The East London line is electrified using third rail and DC traction current. The North London line, however, uses overhead line equipment and AC traction current. This is a North London line train for Richmond in the south west of London. Trains on this line are fitted with a pantograph. The rolling stock used by the Overground are Class 378 “Capitalstar” trains, manufactured by Bombardier. Class 378/1 trains are fitted with a contact shoe only, while Class 378/2 trains, such as this one, are also equipped with a pantograph. Trains towards Stratford are very busy at this time, so platform staff supervises the boarding and alighting process. The London Overground network, which consists of former national rail lines, has grown substantially over the past decade. Service and train frequencies were improved, and ridership on these routes has gone through the roof. With the following scenes outside the station this film now comes to an end.
