When travelling or walking around London, have you ever passed a building and wondered is that an old railway station? Chances are that your assumption could have been correct because throughout the capital there are remains of former stations which have long since ceased to serve their intended purpose. In this programme we are guided around some of these by historian and writer Jim Connor.

Jim may well be known to you as the editor of The London Railway Record, and he has also produced various books on the subject. Having been born in Stepney, his first love has always been the lines of his native East End, and herer he will impart to you some of his extensive knowledge of selected local stations which are no longer open. When he started recording them back in the mid-1960s, many still boasted substantial remains, but with the passage of time much has disappeared. There is nevertheless a great deal which can still be seen, provided you know where to look for it.

Our journey starts with the Great Eastern main line from Liverpool Street where remains of the stations at Bishopsgate Low Level, Globe Road & Devonshire Street and Coborn Road can still be seen. We move on to Stratford Market, which closed in 1957, then see the impressive new Jubilee Line Extension depot which has been built nearby. Still on the Great Eastern, we travel to Lea Bridge at the time of its closure in 1985, and we see the sad windswept platforms submerging beneath a covering of foliage. Moving back towards the inner East End, we look at BowRoad station on the Blackwall Extension Railway. This closed in 1949, but it was extensively recorded by Jim before its platform buildings disappeared eighteen years later. Here we have 1960s archive film, together with recent footage showing the remains as they are today. At Burdett Road we see trolleybuses passing beneath the bridge, where recent new brickwork hinted at the station's recent demolition in the 1950s. Other former stations on the Fenchurch Street line are seen and we also include a rare piece of film showing the once extensive internal railway system in Beckton Gasworks. On the old North London Railway we have 1960s film of Popular line stations, as viewed from a special train and look at the surviving examples of the work of Edwin H Horne. This architect's style became synonymous with the NLR as Leslie Green did on the various Yerk's tube lines. Our programme finishes by travelling on the last train from Island Gardens to Poplar in the small hours of Saturday 9th.January 1999. Such is progress that by the end of the month much of Mudchure station has already been demolished! So sit back and enjoy this unusual armchair journey. If you are fascinated by London and its railway, you are sure to find plenty here to interest you.

The Westerham and Hawkhurst steam branches were attractive lines in Kent both serving the main London & Dover route. Electrification of the main line and falling income from the branches were their downfall. The usual excuse of future infrastructure costs also added fuel to the closure decisions.

Using film from Britian's best cameramen, Online studies them both before and on closure days. Hawkhurst in 1961 witnessed "Undertakers" and a special toured the line a week later. Also the Westerham branch closed in October 1961. Meandering through some of the most lovely countryside famous for hill-top villages, hop gardens and wooded landscapes, the tracks with their little tank engines were a favourite location for the best of film-makers whose work is included here. The H class and the occasional C class engines were the mainstay of the motive power, hauling rickety ancient coaches. This DVD edits the old films neatly and includes scenes filmed recently, forty years after closure. The film is introduced by Harry Hickmott former fireman - Hawkhurst Branch.

Like Onlines other video tapes about London’s Underground. this recording doesn't have talking heads or boring featureless cab rides in tunnels. Using film taken by competent underground enthusiasts it shows many lines and stations in the mid 1950’s onwards. Its a riot of red trains both tube cars and surface line stock.

Starting at Farringdon - a steam tour train with L44 passes - and Met electric loco No.16 follows it up to take over at New Cross Gate. Another steam tour - this time at Edgware Road with L46, LA8 is seen on another special.

Moving to Baker Street a general study of electric trains running from there.

‘T’ stock appears at several stations ‘O’, ‘P’ & ‘F’ stock trains are seen passing. A visit to Neasden features E class, L46, L44 - L53, also the new Pannier tanks.

A trip to Stanmore reveals the practise of including ‘standard stock’ used as trailers with 1938 tube cars. At Northwood Hills, steam trains for Marylebone still hurries by mixed in with the new DMU’s. The well known steam to electric change over is seen once again at Rickmansworth. Chesham saw its last steam train and ‘T stock appears. The Aylesbury LT service is briefly featured and the tip workings to Croxley is filmed.

Amongst red trains at Acton Town can be seen the gleaming aluminium 1956 stock on demonstration runs. Whilst at Acton Town, the quaint single car shuttle to South Acton is seen in detail, the red Q23 ear contrasting with the new style trains. Other trains pass on the nearby North London Line.

‘Standard stock’ on the Piccadilly Line is next prior to a visit to the Fast London Line various underground trains of all types are seen through the damp, gloomy stations and tunnels, back in the 50’s & 60’s. Drayton Park station and depot is seen next - in 1938 tube car days. The last day of these train are featured and battery loco’s haul them away through Finsbury Park and Farringdon. Oerlikon sets of the LNWR shared tracks with jointly owned tube stock near Harrow & Wealdatone filmed in the late 20’s. Finally a study of trains on the Eastern extensions of the Central Line in the 1950’s. A steam train hurries away from South Woodford. We finish our coverage at Ongar. However a more detailed review of the Ongar branch can be seen in our video. Lost Lines around London.
