Location: Oxford Circus
Photo by: Collection of nycsubway.org
Date: 5/24/2013
Notes: The original Baker St. & Waterloo Railway (Bakerloo Line) entrance building for Oxford Circus station, a typical UERL building by Leslie Green with its 'oxblood' tiling, at Oxford and Argyll Sts. It now contains a secondary exit from the station and some LU offices upstairs (accessed to the right of the currency exchange).

Notes: An eastbound train is at the platform. The beige wall tiles look much older than the typical renovated stations in Central London, but were only applied in the 1980s. Behind the WAY OUT sign, a passage cuts through the top of the platform tunnel.

Notes: When the original twin tunnel station was extended about 100 feet in the late 1930s for longer trains, it could only by done by squeezing the east end of it down to a narrow center platform. Here a westbound train is at the platform.

Notes: When the original twin tunnel station was extended about 100 feet in the late 1930s for longer trains, it could only by done by squeezing the east end of it down to a narrow center platform. The length is still barely enough: this eastbound train has to stop with its driver's cab about 10 feet past the end of the platform.

Date: 5/24/2013
Notes: Track crossovers at the 'east' end of White City station, actually south since the line runs north-south here. The tracks just inside the tunnel were previously part of an anticlockwise terminal loop serving the old Wood Lane station. When the line was extended, the loop was incorporated into it and therefore trains here run on the right. The curving track at left is the westbound while the far right one is the eastbound, and the middle track accesses sidings within the former loop. The overbridge is a driveway serving buildings adjacent to the tracks.
