  • Wood Siding railway station was a small halt in Bernwood Forest, Buckinghamshire, England. It was opened in 1871 as a terminus of a short horse-drawn tramway built to assist the transport of goods from and around the Duke of Buckingham's extensive estates in Buckinghamshire and to connect the Duke's estates to the Aylesbury and Buckingham Railway at Quainton Road. A lobbying campaign by residents of the town of Brill led to the tramway being converted for passenger use and extended a short distance beyond Wood Siding to Brill railway station in 1872, becoming known as the Brill Tramway. Cheaply built and ungraded, and using poor quality locomotives, services on the line were very slow, initially limited to a speed of 5 miles per hour (8 km/h). In the 1890s it was planned to extend the tramway to Oxford, but the scheme was abandoned. Instead, the operation of the line was taken over by the Metropolitan Railway in 1899. Between 1908 and 1910 the station was completely rebuilt on a bridge over the newly built Chiltern Main Line of the Great Western Railway, which passed directly beneath the station. In 1933 the Metropolitan Railway was taken into public ownership and became the Metropolitan line of London Transport. As a result, Wood Siding became a station on the London Underground network, despite being over 45 miles (72 km) from the City of London. London Transport's new management aimed to move away from goods services to concentrate on passenger services. As the line served a very lightly populated rural area, the new management believed it very unlikely that it could ever be made viable. Wood Siding was closed, along with the rest of the line, from 30 November 1935. Although all infrastructure associated with the station was removed in 1936, the remains of the bridge which supported the station were not demolished and are still in place. (en)
  • 伍德赛丁站(英语:Wood Siding railway station)前身是位于英格兰白金汉郡本爾伍德森林的一个火车站,建于于1871年。她最初被作为一段短程马拉机车轨道的终点站,用于促进白金汉公爵在白金汉郡的广阔庄园之间及外销的物资运输,以及连通公爵的庄园至位于軍頓路的艾爾斯伯里及白金漢鐵路。 1872年,一场布里爾 (白金漢郡)居民发起的游说运动促该段机车轨道转为开放对乘客使用,并延伸一小段距离直至布里爾站。由于低廉的建造和未经验收,以及使用劣质机车,这段线路的运行速度十分低,起初的最高速度只有5英里每时(8km/h)。19世纪90年代,轨道曾被计划延伸至牛津,但方案最终被弃用。而这条线路的运营权于1899年被大都會鐵路接管。1908至1910年期间,大西部鐵路新建奇尔特恩主线,火车站被全新地重建在其上的一座桥上。 (zh)
