The Website of Tia Maria Jim

Although issued in 1910 this fascinating ticket from Haverstock Hill to Highgate Road is of a very early Midland Railway design which dates back to the opening of the line in 1868.

Both stations were closed during World War One, victims of competition from electrified tramways.

A rare survival.

As my great-grandfather was involved in the building of the Midland Railway's line between Settle and Carlisle [he was a ganger] I have always been interested in anything connected with that company.

I am particularly keen on collecting tickets issued at stations between St Pancras and Bedford and own quite a few.  In time I shall illustrate one from each station on this website.
