Tramlink and the ‘Berlin Wall’ talk – report and photos

Nick Barnett writes:

On 16 September, James Graham (our Chair’s husband) gave an illustrated talk on the campaign (in the late 1990s) to make the tram ramp which runs next to Waddon New Road less oppressive than it was first designed to be.

Among the exhibits (brought by one of the campaigners, our own Ursula Dyke) was a giant folder of evidence about the whole of the tram network proposal, with text, plans and photographs.

Here are some of the photos which were taken near/in the park.  Above: Waddon Marsh Station as it was. Left: Wimbledon branch and Sutton main line.
