RAILWAYS AND RAILWAY STATIONS.

For fuller particulars as to the stations on the several lines, the times of departure and arrival of trains, and the fares, the reader is referred to the official time-tables or to “Bradshaw."

BLACKWALL, Fenchurch Street, City. This line, 3 miles long, is supported for nearly its whole length on brick arches. At the terminus, Brunswick Wharf, steamers to convey passengers to the Victoria Docks, to Woolwich, and various places on the river.

GREAT EASTERN, Shoreditch. This line is carried on brick arches through the unsightly districts of Spitalfields and Bethnal Green to a great depot and station at Stratford, where many

lines diverge, the two principal of which, the Cambridge line and the Ipswich line, connect London with the eastern parts of the island.

EUSTON SQUARE TERMINUS, the station of the London and North-Western Railway, connects London with the northern and north-western parts of England. At the Euston Square terminus is a huge gateway in Grecian Doric, 72 feet high, the supporting columns being 44 feet in height. The hall, 1254 feet by 61} feet, and 60 feet high, contains a colossal marble statue by Baily, of George Stephenson, the engineer, erected by subscription. The bas-reliefs of figures, representing the principal cities and towns connected by the line, are by John Thomas. Just outside the station are the Victoria and Euston Hotels, both under the same management.

GREAT WESTERN STATION, Paddington, with a great hotel fronting Praed Street. This line connects London with the west of England. The late Mr. Brunel was the engineer, and he insisted on laying down the broad guage, but a narrow guage line is now being made. It has been a very expensive line, and a great number of branches have been made from time to time. The middle roof of the station has a span of 90 feet, and the lateral roofs have spans of 70 feet. There are four platforms 700 feet long, and their total width is 240 feet.

KING'S CROSS.—Here is the terminus of the Great Northern Railway, which communicates with the midland and northern

arts of England. It covers 45 acres. The passenger station has platforms 800 feet long. Each roof has a span of 105 feet, and is 71 feet high. The goods shed is 600 feet long by 80 feet
