THE compilers' aim has been to provide students of railways with a handy reference work giving the dates of opening and closing of lines and stations, and the renaming of stations, of all the various railways which merged into the London Transport system. This information, which is presented together for the first time, has been exhaustively checked against official and contemporary records and the greatest possible care has been taken to ensure its accuracy and completeness. The compilers would however be grateful to users of this record who draw attention to any errors or omissions, stating where possible the sources of their information.
The opening dates quoted are those on which the lines or stations were open to the general public. The closures follow the usual modern practice, i.e. the dates on and from which the lines or stations were closed (since 1945 nearly always a Monday), as opposed to those on which the last trains ran. In ambiguous cases the .etter have also been given. In the case of widenings, the dates quoted are when the works were completed and trains were using both the new and old tracks. With some exceptions goods dates are only given when the line or station was opened for goods traffic before the commencement of passenger services. In many cases the opening for goods was on the same date as for passengers and the goods tations are still open under the control of British Railways. Goods traffic starting later than the passenger service has generally been ignored as it is frequently impracticable to ascertain the exact date and for the purposes of this booklet the line or station had already been opened.
A summary of the principal incorporations and amalgamations etc. is given, but it is emphasised that a work of this nature does not purport to be a history. The compilers are grateful to the Tothill Press Ltd., proprietors of The Railway Gazette, and to Messrs lan Allan Ltd, for permission to reproduce the folding map used in London's Underground (third edition), published by Ian Allan, to which readers desiring further information are referred. The official diagramatic map is reproduced by courtesy of London Transport Executive.
