Exhibition: The Outer Circle Railway and the Kew Branch Line

March 15 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm

Did you know that the City of Kew once had two railways? The Society’s new exhibition will focus on railway history in Kew and Kew East. While the primary focus will be on the ‘Outer Circle’ railway, pictures and objects relating to the Kew Branch Line will also be exhibited.

Photographs of construction, infrastructure including railway stock, and the line’s destruction will be drawn from the historic Eric Sibly and Keith Smith donations to the Kew Historical Society’s collection.
Other items exhibited for the first time include a collection of timetables and tickets dating from 1898 to the 1950s; a brass yearly railway ticket for 1951 issued to F.W Noble (donated by the former City of Kew in 1989); and a section of the original railway track donated by Betty Huston.

Following the opening, the exhibition will remain open from March to June, and can be viewed at the Kew Court House each Friday and Saturday between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm.
