The railway system expanded enormously throughout the rest of the 19th century, but over-enthusiasm led to the construction of lines that made little, if any, profit.

As a result, many of these lines were closed systematically during the 1930s and 1960s.

The railway boom of northern England led to the formation of the London and Birmingham Railway (L&BR) by Robert Stephenson in 1833, with the intention of meeting Joseph Locke's Grand Junction Railway at Birmingham, creating a north-south route.

Though the rail line was initially planned to go through Buckingham, where carriage works would have been built, it was altered to Wolverton due to objection from the Duke of Buckingham. Construction of the L&BR began in November 1833 and the section from London Euston to Boxmoor in Hertfordshire opened in 1837.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was appointed as engineer the same year. The line became notable for its use of broad gauge (which was favoured by Brunel) as opposed to standard gauge, which was preferred by most other railway engineers including George and Robert Stephenson.

Other railways using standard gauge later met the GWR resulting in the gauge war which the GWR eventually lost.

At the same time, another railway company, the Great Western Railway (GWR) was formed in 1833, with the intention of linking London and the growing port of Bristol.If you want to continue the conversation, you can ski down together.Or if you just aren’t feeling it, you can leave a lousy match behind on the mogul field.An HS2 spokesman said the company was aware of the potential problem with the bats.“It is far too early to say whether Bechstein’s bats would be affected by the proposed high speed rail link as so little is known about them.
