Does anybody happen to know when the trailing crossover at Peckham Rye (South London Line) was put in (and taken out??)

It is shown on this map:

http://carto.metro.free.fr/cartes/metro-tram-london/

But is absent from both eras of the London Bridge ASC sim and from the OpenTrainTimes map:

Which makes me think it could have been installed after 2014 and lifted before 2019. A very short life, so I'm wondering what the real story is.

It looks like it was taken out around 2012, according to Google Earth's imagery. Panel photos in the signalbox indicate it was clipped and padlocked at the time the photo was taken in 2008 - no signalled moves, and no ground frame. I don't know when it was installed.

It's already appearing in the plans for the original London Bridge PSB resignalling, and is shown as being clipped and padlocked even back then.
Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.

The station platforms were reconstructed in 1961 when at the same time a depot at Peckham Rye Jn and coal sidings to the East of the station were taken up[1]. So my guess is that the crossover would have been taken out of use then or sometime surely after?

Thanks

It was not a motorised crossover and was clipped and padlocked unless required for engineering works or emergencies in which case the P-Way had to unclip them and manually bar them over. There are/were several around the kent area including kidbrooke and Charlton.
