The remarkable story of Wimbledon Station

A tale of development from pasture to platform and to what became 'New Wimbledon'

A not-to-be-missed exhibition for railway buffs opens at the Museum of Wimbledon on Friday 12 January.

The Exhibition reveals photogtaphic images and anecdotes plus a display of model engines, carriages, metal signs, signals and a mock-up of the original ticket office.

The story of the station - one of the the initial ‘wonders of Wimbledon’ tells of Heath Robinson style signalling, unfortunate accidents and dramatic discomfort for early traveller.
