Inspired by the Subway exhibition for Open House weekend 2014
Open House weekend also marks another important anniversary for Crystal Palace. On 19 September 1954, the very last train left Crystal Palace High Level Station and both the station and its subway were closed on 20 September; sixty years ago to the day of Open House 2014.
To mark the occasion The Southwark Model Railway Club have a model of the steam engine that pulled the last train and they will be running that on their impressive 32ft model of the station and tracks.
A must see for local historians, train enthusiasts and young people of all ages. The concert platform building has full disabled access.
Open House weekend 20th and 21st September 2014
saw 1708 people flock to the Crystal Palace Subway and our ‘Inspired by the Subway’ exhibition, as part of the annual Open House London event.
More than 3000 people took part in a ballot for the chance to visit the ornate vaulted walkway which used to lead rail passengers from the High Level station to the Crystal Palace. Places were allocated to 757 people of all ages from across London, Kent, Essex and beyond.
During the weekend 951 people visited a free exhibition which marked the culmination of a year of hard work to capture the stories of the subway.
The project also trained tour guides for the Open House weekend and produced a new historical leaflet about the subway.
