London and Croydon Railway looking towards Greenwich Railway. This view, according to the lithograph's full title, is 'from the deep cutting made through the hills at New Cross, looking towards Greenwich Railway'. The London and Croydon Railway opened in 1839 and joined the Greenwich line at Corbett's Lane junction. Both railways terminated at London Bridge. In order to prevent collisions, the world's first 'signalbox' was constructed at Corbett's Lane in the late 1830s. Coloured lithograph.
