    Great posters. I wonder if the late Commie Bill - ex 'miner' was responsible for posting the Save the Pits posters? or it could have been L&G Support the Miners (as featured in the film Pride) as some of them lived around here.

    Brixton Buzz sent around a 100 people to the petition site today already, which makes me chuffed. It would be a real shame if Network Rail get to destroy even more local character.

    Given how much dead space there is alongside train tracks, in particular around stations and railway junctions, I cannot believe that they cannot place the transformer somewhere along the tracks within the footprint of HH station. Looking at a satellite image of the line around the station, lack of space is clearly not the issue.

    There might be a technical or logistical reason i’m not aware of, but I suspect it’s just to do with a higher cost to NR.

    The substation is to service the rental units not railway operations. And NR's property arm is being lined up for a sell-off. So that is probably one reason NR don't want it alongside the tracks.
