Chronoyster - 2 August 1880

On 2 August 1880, the Metropolitan Railway extended from Willesden Green to Harrow-on-the-Hill.

then Kingsbury & Neasden

I went to Neasden with no preconceived ideas of what I would blog about, but I soon discovered two temples of worship...

Ikea, the temple of consumerism.

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, one of the biggest Hindu temples outside India.

While trying to find the second from the first, I got a little disorientated but, as a bonus, I did come across this completely by accident. Fans of The Big Fat Quiz, this is Mitchell Brook Primary School!


then Harrow

The official station name has two hyphens, but the roundels have none and the two middle names are placed one above the other.

Open stations: 59

Next: 25 September 1882
