Searching For The Dudding Hill Line – North Acton

After I’d walked down Victoria Road, I took a photograph of the North London line, where it crosses the Central line on a high bridge. I then took a bus to Acton Central station, from where I took a train back to Hackney. As I crossed the bridge I took another photo, followed by another as the Dudding Hill line broke off to the left, to cross Park Royal and the Grand Union Canal.

Again the last picture, gives the impression that it is well-maintained railway.

Note the picture of the maps at Acton Central station. They show what a tortuous web London’s railways were in the Victorian era.  And I suspect, it’s not just London, that was covered by such an intricate pattern of lines.
