Southern Railway enamel Target KEW GARDENS. Opened by the L&SWR on 1 January 1869, in an area of market gardens and orchards. Located on the branch to Richmond built from the West London Joint Railway starting north of Addison Road. The line ran through Shepherd's Bush and Hammersmith via a now closed curve and Grove Road station in Hammersmith (also now closed). Via a short connection from the N&SWJR to Gunnersbury the line was also served by the NLR. For 5 months in 1870, the GWR ran services from Paddington to Richmond via Hammersmith & City Railway tracks to Grove Road then on the L&SWR tracks through Kew Gardens. Good colour and shine, some repairs already filled but not painted. Extremely rare and desirable, never on the market before.
