Following Bradshaw’s Descriptive Railway Handbook (1861 Edition) – The Hounslow Loop Line

Bradshaw’s was one of the earliest modern guide books and the earliest editions dealt with railway timetables but by the early 1860’s, information about what was in the area had started to appear. So, armed with my 1861 reproduction of the guide, we are going to be following the Hounslow Loop line to see what was mentioned in Bradshaw’s at each stop and how much of it, if anything remains.
