RailRef Line Codes LE

London Electric Railway

Explanation of column content is here.

These lines comprise the Underground Electric Railways of London lines (UE). Formed in 1902, UE acquired ownership of the various deep level tube lines in London between then and 1915. In the central London area the lines ran generally in paired single line tunnels, one for each direction. For the purposes of this listing both tunnels are treated as 'one' tunnel.

The entire London Underground network was changed to kilometric measurement with a datum of Ongar. Ongar was closed soon after!
