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.
A large number of people have signed up for the newsletter in the last few days. The most recent newsletter actually went out just before the tickets for Open House became available.
