The Railway Comes to Tring

BLH&MS talk on 19 Feb 2020

The Railway Comes to Tring, by Ian Petticrew.

The talk looks (in brief) at how the London & Birmingham Railway came to be built: the route as originally proposed – and as eventually constructed; civil engineering along the line from Euston to Tring; early train services and the Railway’s impact on stage coach services, the Sparrows Herne Turnpike and the canal.
