==Latest January 2016==
The original staircase is now being restored and extended so that it can reach the Old Waiting Room. This work is expected to be completed by summer 2016. It coincides with the 150th anniversary of the opening of Peckham Rye station and the railways coming to Peckham. That heralded a dramatic change in the built environment and demographics of Peckham. The areas needed before for food growing to feed central London were given up for housing, much of which remains today. Peckham Vision has asked Network Rail for permission to use the Old Waiting Room to hold a series of informative exhibitions and events to celebrate the railways during this 150th anniversary when the stairs are completed. The events would cover railway history and operations, and events which link to that history in some way. Anyone with ideas or suggestions about such events, or who wishes to join our group to enable this programme to happen please email
