Clapham Junction railway station

Clapham Junction railway station is located in Battersea, London in England. When the station was built the name Clapham Junction was chosen because Clapham was a more fashionable area than Battersea. It is the busiest railway station in the United Kingdom with around 2000 trains passing through the station each day. It may well be the busiest station in the world.

On December 12, 1988 a three train pile-up just outside the station resulted in the death of 35 people.
