Yay, back into the open spaces again! Well, not really. Wimbledon is a rather menacing looking station to which my usual exposure is trains from Leatherhead to Vauxhall, and where I look at the District Line passengers and think "I'm going to be passing through Victoria long before they are!". Unfortunately I'm gettining my come-uppances now, as I'm the District Line passenger.

The other unfortunate feature of this branch of the District Line is that it floods during wet weather, which causes knock-on delays across the entire SSL network.

On the plus side, Wimbledon is also a terminus for Croydon Tramlink which is how we're going to get to Morden. After Morden we vanish underground for upwards of 90 minutes, so you won't hear anything else from us for a while.
