Eastleigh: Railway south of Eastleigh station
Eastleigh: Railway south of Eastleigh station
Taken from a similar viewpoint on the Campbell Road bridge to Martin's SU4518 : Southampton Bound Express the lines to and from Southampton are on the left and two of the access lines to and from the Eastleigh works are to the right. Eastleigh station is visible in the distance. The station opened in 1839 and in view of the fact that the town of Eastleigh did not exist then it was originally called Bishopstoke. When new lines were built radiating out from it, it was renamed Bishopstoke Junction in 1852, as Eastleigh and Bishopstoke in 1889, and finally to just Eastleigh in 1923.
