New Cross Gate
In 1990, New Cross Gate was the southern limit of the East London Line and
the rolling stock looked similar to that on the Metropolitan line.
The trains were, however, much shorter, to suit the platforms further north.

In 1970 the circular 173 bus route that connected Nunhead and Peckham lost its conductors and was renumbered as the P3. In 1978 that P3 route was revised to serve London Bridge. On 3rd February 2001 this was renumbered as the 343 and Volvo B7TLs predominated, over five years later the buses served Tooley Street almost to Tower Bridge Road and then, in June 2019, a further extension to Aldgate secured an attractive route to Saint Katherine’s Dock and the escalator-equipped DLR terminus of Tower Gateway. Great views towards City Hall and the Tower of London thereby became available to top-deck passengers.
