A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
I have a friend by the name of Mick Berg who lives on the west coast of California and he has just sent me a YouTube link to a new version of a simulated video of the journey, as seen from a viewpoint following the train:
Mick spent his childhood in Muswell Hill living in Dukes Avenue – he was passionately interested in the old and derelict railway line from Alexandra Palace Station through to Finsbury Park and has done extensive research on the line and its history. Using some clever computer modelling and animation, Mick has produced this 20-minute film that gives an impression of what it might have looked like on the journey. It starts at Alexandra Palace Station, then through to Muswell Hill Station and on to Cranley Gardens, Highgate, Crouch End and Stroud Green, finishing on Platform 10 at Finsbury Park.
Suspend disbelief and imagine yourself on this journey!
Thanks Colin and Mick. It's an excellent video. I have walked this route from Muswell Hill to Finsbury Park many times. Well worth doing.
