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.


Which would have ended up at Frognall!


I presume you mean "At Finchley Rd & Frognal station". Frognal itself is
further east where the NLL is in tunnel.


I'm not aware of another station, also can't spell!


It would have been interesting if it came out at Froghall ...
