Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gravesend railway station serves the town of Gravesend in north Kent; train services are operated by Southeastern. The station is 24 miles from London Charing Cross. It has two central through lines for through freight trains and peak-time non-stopping passenger services and up and down loops that serve the two platforms. The first railway to arrive in Gravesend was the Gravesend & Rochester Railway who had purchased the Thames and Medway Canal and its tunnel between Strood and Higham. The G&RR ran the first train to the then terminus at Gravesend on 10 February 1845. On 30 July 1849 the line was extended to North Kent East Junction on the South Eastern Railway and thence to London Bridge.show more
