Secrets of the London Underground. Coming later this year on Yesterday


Recommended Posts

I reckon that is Euston, the old entrance, underneath the sub-station(?) (which has probably been demolished by now for HS2), corner of  Coburg St? Been there many times when at work.

It's the underground connecting passage between the City & South London and the Charing Cross and Hampstead platforms, now the two branches of the Northern Line.  When they were separate companies, through travellers had to re-book.  

 

Hope they can mash up the best of the Architecture the Railways Built and the Hidden London videos.

Thank you so much for posting the original link, as for years I had a vague memory of travelling to Glasgow as a small child and the island platform at Euston. I was sure there was another loop next to the platform and seeing other trains by pass the Euston platform. The one picture of the booking office set me searching the web and something that has been ticking away at the back of my brain has now been answered.

 

There is a detailed article here with loads of pics under images, one of which is the booking office in question. I can see that once life returns to normal, I must go on one of the tours, but they may be terminated with the work going on at Euston station.

Really looking forward to this series.  I've got a copy of Christian Wolmar's book, 'The Subterranean Railway', which I picked up in a charity shop a few years ago.  I found it a fascinating read, especially the bits about the inter-company rivalry in the early days.  I might read it again to prime myself for the show.
