Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Broad Street railway station was a major terminal station in the City of London, England. It opened in 1865 and closed in 1986. It was the main terminus of the North London Railway network of suburban services and was adjacent to Liverpool Street station. The extension of the North London Railway to Broad Street was authorised by the North London Railway Act of 22 July 1861. The station was opened on 1 November 1865. It was the terminus of a network of commuter railways linking east and west London via the looping route of the NLR, originally with 7 platforms, and three approach lines. Broad Street goods station was next to the passenger station, and opened for traffic on 18 May 1868. It was built on a deck, and a lift was provided to move wagons down to warehouses below. The deck was not strong enough to carry locomotives, so shunting was done by rope and capstan.show more
