Looking towards the Marlow branch at Maidenhead station
Looking towards the Marlow branch at Maidenhead station
Although it was on the original line of the Great Western Railway, which opened as far as Reading in 1840, Maidenhead station did not open on its present site until 1st November 1871. The original Maidenhead station lay east of the River Thames, close to the present Taplow station. This was the line's first terminus, pending the completion of Maidenhead Railway Bridge across the Thames. The line from Maidenhead to High Wycombe was opened in 1854 but this now just runs to Marlow, trains having to reverse at Bourne End.
In this view from the down platform, the two fast lines are out of sight to the left while the Marlow branch veers away to the right.
