Video: Network Rail completes electrification works on Gospel Oak-Barking route

Watch as Network Rail completes a key milestone in the £133m upgrade to the railway between Gospel Oak and Barking.

Work to electrify this last London Overground route is 80 per cent complete, and will see two car diesel trains replaced with four car electric trains from 2018.

Engineers have spent the last five months lowering track at five sites between Gospel Oak and Barking, to make way for new masts that will carry overhead wires to power new electric trains. Watch footage of the works above.
