Default West Hamstead North London Line Station

For the first time in ages, I alighted yesterday at West Hampstead
Station on the North London Line. This station has been a building
site for a very long time and it now seems the work is nearing
completion.

The old entrance hall is closed and on Sunday a new one opened
a few yards further south. It's spacious and well lit and is an
improvement on the previous arrangement.

I don't know how much has been spent on both this station and
the Thameslink West Hampstead in recent years but my guess is
a lot. I still think it would have been better thirty or forty years ago
to have built a new, combined West Hampstead Station where the
North London Line crosses over the Midland main Line.
