Waterloo

Finally no account of Waterloo is complete without even a brief mention of the other three Waterloo stations. Firstly that of the underground Waterloo and City Line, the line built by the LSWR to ply commuters between Waterloo and the City of London, now owned by the London Underground since privatisation. Secondly the main London Underground station serving the Bakerloo, Northern (and since late 1999) Jubilee lines. Finally the Necropolis station situated to the south of the main station beyond platform 1. This small two track station served the funeral trains of the Necropolis and National Mausoleum Company taking coffins and mourners from London to the company's cemetery at Brookwood in Surrey. The Necropolis station was destroyed in an air raid in April 1941.

Waterloo Another aerial view from the British Airways London Eye - this time of Waterloo East Station. The former SER station is heavily hemmed in by buildings and the line from Charing Cross to London Bridge traverses on a brick viaduct a heavily built up part of the south bank area of London. In this 2nd June 2000 photograph a class 465 Networker unit and an unidentified MkI EMU can be seen.
