Hundreds of commuters were caught up in an evacuation of Clapham Junction on Monday morning.
The station was evacuated "on safety grounds" due to overcrowding at around 9am as many commuters attempted to use the trains instead of the London Underground .
The tube strike began at 6pm on Sunday for 24 hours, and halted many services - including shutting all Zone 1 stations.
Clapham Junction remained closed for about half an hour as trains passed straight through the temporarily deserted station.
Commuters captured scenes of packed station concourses - with one man even attempting to entertain the frustrated crowd at Clapham Junction.
Commuters experienced packed stations at Waterloo and Victoria railway stations, and bus stops and taxi concourses throughout the capital saw huge queues snaking along roads.
Zone 1 tube stations were open inside the Circle line boundary.
TfL planned to run a limited service on the District, Circle and Hammersmith and City lines, although trains were not stopping at all stations.
There were no Underground services from key National Rail interchange stations including Waterloo, London Bridge, Victoria, King's Cross St Pancras, Paddington, Euston and Bank.
Shuttle services were being put on wherever possible at the end of lines between 7am and 7pm.
And there was no service at all on the whole of the Victoria line, the Waterloo and City line, and the Piccadilly line serving Heathrow terminals 4 & 5.
