This section only covers those stations that can still be seen from 
passing trains.  

St. Mary's (Whitechapel Road) : District/Hammersmith & City between 
Aldgate East and Whitechapel. Accompanied by a curve connecting to the 
East London Line between Whitechapel & Shadwell. (Look on your *left* 
if you're travelling facing the direction of travel between Shadwell 
and Whitechapel, or on your *right* if you're facing the direction of 
travel between Aldgate East and Whitechapel).   

Tower Hill/Mark Lane : District/Circle Line just past the present Tower 
Hill in the direction of Monument. Look on the right as you're leaving 
the station (or left if you're travelling towards Tower Hill) and you 
should be able to see the stairs leading up from the Eastbound 
platform. Westbound trains run through the Westbound platform at Mark 
Lane as they've turned the original westbound line at the current Tower 
Hill into an island platform with the original line being used for 
terminating trains. The current station is on the site of the original, 
temporary, terminus at Tower of London.   

British Museum : Just to the west of Holborn on the Central Line. 
British Museum was closed when the interchange with the Piccadilly Line 
was opened in 1933.   

King's Cross : Just to the east of the present Hammersmith & City, 
Circle and Metropolitan Line station. The station was relocated in 
March 1941 to improve the interchange with the tube lines (at that time 
the Northern and Piccadilly). Thameslink services still serve the 
platforms on the Widened Lines just the other side of the wall behind 
the old westbound platform.   

Brompton Road : Between South Kensington and Knightsbridge on the 
Piccadilly.  

Down Street : Between Hyde Park Corner and Green Park on the Piccadilly 
Line.  

York Road : Between King's X St. Pancras and Caledonian Road on the 
Piccadilly.  

South Kentish Town : Between Kentish Town and Camden Town on the 
Northern Line.   

City Road : Between Angel and Old Street on the Northern Line.

Lord's, Marlborough Road & Swiss Cottage : On the Metropolitan Line 
between Baker Street and Finchley Road. Lord's & Marlborough Road 
Closed on 19 Nov 1939, with Swiss Cottage closing on 17 Aug 1940. The 
replacement stations of St. John's Wood and Swiss Cottage (Jubilee) 
opened on 20 Nov 1939, along with the rest of the Bakerloo Line (now 
Jubilee) branch from Baker Street to Wembley Park which then took over 
the Metropolitan Line branch from there to Stanmore (except for a peak 
hours only service between Rayners Lane and Aldgate, calling at all 
intermediate stations, which ran until 07 Dec 1940).    

Preston Road : On the Metropolitan Line slightly east of the modern 
station.   

Westbourne Park : On the Hammersmith and City Line, slightly west of 
the modern station.   

Wood Lane : On the Central Line, slightly east of White City.  

White City : On the Hammersmith & City Line between Shepherd's Bush and 
Latimer Road. Close to Wood Lane (Central Line).  

Shepherds Bush : On the Hammersmith & City Line between Shepherd's Bush 
and Goldhawk Road.  

Hammersmith : On the Hammersmith & City Line just north of the modern 
terminus. Closed when the new terminus opened in 1868.

modern station.
