L1205. View of the junction between the Metropolitan Railway and the Great Central at Canfield Place. This was the start of Contract No. 7 which left the Metropolitan here and ran down to Marylebone - a distance of under two miles. This short line was built by J. T. Firbank of London Bridge between 1894 and 1898. The photograph shows a good variety of railway furniture including telegraph poles, semaphore signals and buffer stops. To the far right stands a goods train consisting of Midland Railway mineral wagons and a Metropolitan Railway brake van. Another short train of wagons can be seen in the distance.
