Has anyone else noticed that trains leaving Waterloo East station (platforms A and C) make a repetitive thudding noise. The noise seems to start as the train passes over Thai Silk restaurant. For the first time in 28 years, I am being woken very early once the morning trains start running.

Yes, I have. Am currently sleeping on the sofa on the other side of my flat because of it. Well that and the increased noise from work/workers overnight....

I was wondering if your clanking noise was the same, as the railway goes down there.

Pepper Street: have looked at your previous thread. The noise to which I refer is permanent ie it happens every time trains leave the station. The occasional noise in the early hours if often maintenance.
