Talk:West London Railway
They were three
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.
