They were three[edit]

Some disentanglement is needed. These three were separate entities:

  • West London Railway. Started 1836 as The Birmingham, Bristol & Thames Junction Railway, was renamed West London Railway. Service began in 1844. Closed the same year. Leased in 1845 and used only for freight.
  • West London Extension Railway authorsed in 1859 to extend WLR line to Clapham Junction. Pax service reintroduced.
  • West London Line in essence the tracks combined of the WLR and the WLER from then on despite the fates of the successors to the founding companies.

There is a confus-ing/-ed linking and redirecting between the three in WP--SilasW (talk) 15:41, 3 June 2010 (UTC).

I quite agree; I've made a start on writing an article on the historical railways, leaving the present day at West London Line Afterbrunel (talk) 20:46, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
