LONDON & SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY ROUTES TO THE CITY AND WEST END
Speaker: John King.
The original terminus of the LSWR opened at Nine Elms in 1838 but as early as 1836 plans were being made to extend further east towards the City. Even Waterloo, to begin with, was not intended as a terminus but as a through station. Over the years the LSWR hatched many schemes to get closer to the City and West End. This illustrated talk will trace the history of those schemes and services.
