Hatfield and St Albans Branch of the Great Northern Railway (The) LP168

by Roger D Taylor and Brian Anderson

Oakwood Press – Locomotion Papers No: 168

A bookshop’s brief review:

Prior to the coming of the railway to St Albans in Hertfordshire, townsfolk had to travel by road to either Watford (south-west) or Hatfield (east) to their nearest station. The LNWR opened a branch line to St Albans from Watford in 1858, and the Great Northern Railway responded by building this line, just over 6 miles long, from Hatfield, opening in 1865.
