Wembley Central Station: platforms in the 'basement'
Wembley Central Station: platforms in the 'basement'
View SE on Platform 1, towards London Euston, also Elephant & Castle via Queens Park: ex-LNWR, National Rail/Virgin West Coast Main Line and Watford DC Lines, also London Underground Bakerloo Line (to Harrow & Wealdstone). The 'tunnel' results from the construction in the 1960s of Station Square, with shops and offices, above the railway during the time the electrification of the WCML was being undertaken. The Fast lines are in the middle on the left (Platforms 3 and 4). These platforms are not normally used and expresses rushing through at 100+ mph are liable to sweep people off even the Slow lines platforms (Nos. 5 and 6), where local services call. These are kept clear except when a stopping train is due. [How on earth this is managed, I don't understand]? Until the Olympics of 1948, held at Wembley Park, the station was named 'Wembley, for Sudbury'.
