Earlier today a number of people were invited to try out the new East London Line extension between Surrey Quay’s and Clapham Junction.
By the courtesy of the driver, I was allowed to video the drivers view – by the highly technical method of taking my mobile phone and sticking it to the drivers window with some blue-tac!
Best £1.50 investment in a packet of blue-tac ever.
The press trip ran from Dalston Junction to Clapham Junction and the line opens to the general public on the 9th December.
I’ll write a bit more in a day or two, but here is the video for your “enjoyment”.
Incidentally, the video has no sound – just in case the driver said anything not for broadcast… and I had no idea it would be so damn difficult to find video editing software able to mute a smartphone video file!
