Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Buckingham was a railway station which served Buckingham, the former county town of Buckinghamshire, England, between 1850 and 1966. The first survey of the London and Birmingham Railway's main line to London plotted a course which ran through Buckingham where a large locomotive and carriage works would have been built. The route was however altered in the face of opposition from the Duke of Buckingham who feared for the future of the town, and the line took a new course through Wolverton, opening in 1838. It was to be a further twelve years before Buckingham was connected to the railway, this time on the initiative of the second Duke of Buckingham together with local landowner Sir Harry Verney who formed the Buckinghamshire Railway to construct a line between Banbury and Bletchley.show more
