23rd May 2010 saw the first services from Forest Hill to Dalston Junction.
After ten years, it is a route that many of us take for granted (or at least we did until Covid-19) but the Forest Hill Society and Sydenham Society were there on the first day; leading a group of intrepid explorers into the unknown realm of North East London, and to such enticingly names places as Haggerston and Shoreditch High Street. All returned from the adventure safe and well - leading the way for closer ties between these previously unconnected communities.
Below are a few photos from that first trip 'Up North' on Day One of the Overground service on the East London Line.
