GNR 1900 Leeds Branch (Hunslet Railway)
THE GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY NEW BRANCH LINE AND GOODS STATION AT LEEDS.  (1900) It was in the session of 1893 that this branch line, which we shall proceed to describe and illustrate in the present and some succeeding articles, received the sanction of Parliament under the title of the "Hunslet Railway". In the following year, however, by virtue of the additional powers conferred upon the Great Northern Line, arrangements were entered into which ultimately caused it to become the proper..
LNWR 1868 Lime Street Station
The elevation and plan of this hotel, now in course of erection by the London and North-Western Railway Company, are from the designs of Mr. Waterhouse, 8, New Cavendish-street. The contractors for the works, Messrs. Haigh and Co., of Liverpool, are in full operation with the building, which is expected to be finished by January next. The design has been greatly modified from the original plan, so as to admit of the hotel being set back for the widening of Lime-street. A glass roof will be thrown over th..
LNWR 3 compartment composite coach
This model of an early LNWR tri-composite carriage is based on a vehicle which was acquired by the Mawddwy Railway from the LNWR. The vehuicle was photographed around 1900 when passenger services were withdrawn. The photographic evidence gives an excellent idea of the construction of this vehicle. This is a lasercut kit of a historical railway carriage of the mid 1800's, designed and produced in-house by Design3D. The kit is manufactured in MDF and card with clear acrylic glazing.  It is supp..

LSR 1904 (Liverpool & Southport Railway) Electrification
THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE LIVERPOOL AND SOUTHPORT RAILWAY.  The railway companies of this country have keenly felt the competition which the advent of electric tramways has caused, and have sought means to protect themselves against it. A number of things have been suggested so as while not reducing the speed of the trains, to keep down expenses to such a point as would enable the fares charged to be reduced to the level of, or even below, the small charges made by the tramways. There have been..
MET 1866 Metropolitan District Railway  (Inner Circle)
THE METROPOLITAN DISTRICT RAILWAY (1866)  The present Metropolitan Railway, extending from Bishop’s-road to Moorgate-street, forms, as is very generally known, but the northern side of an irregular "circle" of underground railways which will surround that part of the metropolis lying between the existing line and the Thames. Of this "inner circle", as it is called, the Metropolitan District Railway will form the southern side, whilst the eastern and western portions wi..
MET 1868 Metropolitan Railway Widened Lines
THE WIDENING OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY (1868) The widening of the Metropolitan Railway between King’s-cross and Farringdon-street stations, with the deviations of the branches to the Great Northern Railway, has been practically completed, and on the 15th of January was formally inspected by Captain Tyler on behalf of the Board of Trade.  A constantly increasing traffic has rendered this extension necessary, and the new lines are intended for the service of the Great Western, Great Northe..
MET 1895 Metropolitan Railway History
HISTORY OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY. Probably few persons among the many hundreds of thousands annually using the Metropolitan Railway are aware that when it was first opened for traffic, in January, 1863, from Bishop's-road to Farringdon-street, it was a broad-gauge line, worked by broad-gauge engines and carriages. As a matter of fact, it was a "mixed gauge" line, being laid with both the 7ft. and the ordinary 4ft. 8¼  in.  gauges, although only broad-gauge rolling stock..
MET 1904  Metropolitan Railway Electrification
THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THE METROPOLITAN RAILWAY (1904) Our Readers will remember the controversy which took plate some three years ago on the question as to the method of electrification to be employed on the systems of the Metropolitan and District Railways. The Hoard of Trade finally decided that direct current of comparatively low tension — from 500 to 600 volts—was to be used on both railways, which were to arrange matters in such a way that the trains of either company could run on the o..
MR 1867 St. Pancras Station
St. PANCRAS STATION, MIDLAND RAILWAY EXTENSION (1867) We propose to give a description of the works now in course of execution for this railway, commencing at about two miles from the London terminus, and following the course of the line until we arrive at the St. Pancras station, where the line terminates. The railway is constructed for four lines of way for a considerably further distance than we have named, and at the point from which we started it emerges from under the Hampstead Junction Railway, wh..
MR 1875 Pullman Cars
PULLMAN CARS (1875)  In the year 1859 Mr. Pullman constructed the first of the cars which have since made the name of Pullman world-famed, and this car was placed in service on the Chicago and Alton Railway, a line extending from Chicago to St. Louis, some 280 miles in length. Previous to this time sleeping cars had been in use, to a limited extent, upon several American railways, but they were for the most part crude in their arrangements, and ill adapted for meeting the requirements of fatigui..
MR 1876 0-4-4 Tank Engine
Midland Railway 0-4-4 Tank Engine (1876) We give this week a two-page engraving, together with other views on the present and opposite pages, of one of a class of powerful tank locomotives constructed from the designs of Mr. Samuel W. Johnson, for working heavy local passenger traffic on the Midland Railway. The engine now illustrated may be considered to be a development of the type introduced by Mr. Johnson on the Great Eastern Railway, while he was the locomotive superintendent of that line - a type w..
MR 1876 Composite Carriage
MIDLAND RAILWAY DOUBLE-BOGIE CARRIAGES (1876). It is now about two years since the Midland Railway Company commenced running Pullman cars on their line, the first regular service of these cars having been established, as many of our readers will remember, between London and Bradford. The result of the working of these cars was so satisfactory to the company that they soon largely extended their use of double-bogie passenger stock; and when about fourteen months ago {vide page 203 of our nineteenth volume..
MR 1893 Dining Cars
NEW FIRST AND THIRD CLASS DINING CARRIAGES ON THE MIDLAND RAILWAY (1893) The Midland Railway Company, which was the first to allow third-class passengers to travel by all trains, is just about to make further provision for their convenience and comfort. Commencing on Monday, July 3rd, the Midland Company, in conjunction with the Glasgow and South Western Company, will place on the Scotch service additional afternoon expresses, which will run between London (St. Pancras) and Glasgow (St. Enoch), start..
