June 2nd 2012 .. Woolwich Arsenal Station
Woolwich Arsenal station was originally built in 1849 as part of the north kent line from London to Gillingham.. It was rebuilt in 1906 and then again, in its present form, in 1996 . The DLR became part of the station complex in 2009.
Did you know that there was once a fatal train crash at Woolwich ?
On the 18th November 1948 the 12.28 from Charing Cross to Dartford ran into the rear end of the 12.17 from Canon St to Gravesend which was standing in Woolwich Arsenal station. The driver of the Dartford train and one passenger were killed. Fourteen passengers and two members of staff were treated for minor injuries.
The ministry of transport enquiry concluded that the late driver of the Dartford train was to blame for the accident as he had left Woolwich dockyard station against a danger signal . Photo taken June 2nd 2012
