Paddington Ticket Auction: Rail & Road Tickets, 26 October 2019

Lot 33 (2) Sale 270
LNWR, Royal Showground
London & North Western Railway. Singles from and to Royal Show Ground Station, opened for the Royal Agricultural Society's show from 23 to 27 June 1903. Quick's Chronology gives public use as having been between those dates only, but one of the tickets (2nd class to Kensal Rise) is clearly dated for 28 June 1905 indicating that there was public traffic in that year and probably in 1904 also. The RAS abandoned this venue after the 1905 show proved financially disastrous.
