Further Notes

ACD - Mon 02/06/1997. LTR - Sat 31/05/1997. Some publications (see RPSGB p526) give OCD as Sun 01/06/1997, seemingly in SR tradition. No Sunday service operating at time so "on and from" next scheduled day of services adopted here.

Closed for conversion to Croydon Tramlink.

*Wimbledon West Jct. - Mitcham North Jct. - 3m 1c; Mitcham South Jct. - West Croydon Jct. (divergence point) - 2m 33c - estimated distance as the section of line from the divergence point to West Croydon Jct. shares the same formation as the 'main line' for approximately 25c.

RO 30/07/2000 as Croydon Tramlink - entire route except for short sections at Mitcham North/South Jcts. and at West Croydon Jct. where new formations constructed for deviations/new routes.
