List of Abbey line animations

Here is a list of all available Abbey line animations. Their significance is explained in our article Improving the service between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey

At Watford Junction, only those railway tracks relevant to our animations are shown.

The animations aim to illustrate railway infrastructure and are therefore not to scale.

User Guide

To view the animations:
Each animation will take time to download. It is better to complete a download prior to starting a further download i.e. prior to accessing another animation. Each animation consists of a series of frames. During downloading, the animation may run at a speed determined by the download speed, although this should only be visible on slower connections. Once a download is complete, the animation should run at the designed frame rate.

If using Internet Explorer, the Stop button may stop the animation at the currently-displayed frame, the Refresh button may restart the animation at 00:00 minutes and seconds from the start. If using Mozilla Firefox, the Stop button does not seem to take effect, the Reload button may (or may not) restart the animation. The effects of these or equivalent buttons may depend on circumstances.

We recommend viewing an animation prior to commencing the download of a further animation.

Two frame rates, i.e. animation speeds, are made available. The slower is 1 frame every 2 seconds. The faster is 1 frame per second.
