The Architecture The Railways Built – 15 February 2021 – 15/2/2021 – Monday – SBS

Tim is shown around the former headquarters of London Underground, 55 Broadway. It was built in the late 1920s and, with 14 storeys, became the first skyscraper in London. Also incorporating St James’ Park tube station, the building’s modernist style was designed to give London Underground workers a beautiful place to work and many of those original features remain, including the train interval clock system – and a controversial statue.

About The Architecture The Railways Built

Railway expert and train enthusiast Tim Dunn explores the stunning architecture that lines the railway network in `The Architecture the Railways Built’. He visits stations made up of simple stone buildings, decorative Victorian grandeur, and striking glass and concrete structures, but he doesn’t stop at visiting stations, as he explores every structure which owes its existence to the railway, including viaducts, railway hotels, tunnels, and the less obvious buildings such as homes, swimming pools, and Turkish baths.

This show is broadcast on SBS.
