The Northern & Eastern Railway was an early British railway company, that planned to build a line from London to York. Its ambition was cut successively back, and it only constructed from Stratford, London to Bishop's Stortford and Hertford. It was always short of money, and it got access to London over the Eastern Counties Railway. It was built at the track gauge of five feet, but it converted to standard gauge in 1844. The entire network is still in use and electrified, and part of the original main line now forms a section of the main line between London (Liverpool Street) and Cambridge.

dbo:abstract
  • Die Northern and Eastern Railway (N&ER) war eine britische Eisenbahngesellschaft, die von 1836 bis 1902 existierte und die nordöstlich von London gelegenen Gebiete erschloss. Die N&ER war Teil eines im Jahr 1836 präsentierten Projekts zum Bau einer Eisenbahnstrecke von Islington über Cambridge, Peterborough und Lincoln nach York. In der Gesetzesvorlage, die 1839/40 vom Parlament beraten wurde, war der Abschnitt nördlich von Bishop’s Stortford jedoch nicht mehr enthalten. Am 15. September 1840 wurde der Betrieb zwischen Stratford und aufgenommen, die Verlängerung nach Bishop’s Stortford folgte am 31. Oktober 1843. Ab 1. Januar 1844 war die Strecke an die Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) verpachtet. Die ECR ging 1862 in der Great Eastern Railway (GER) auf, doch die N&ER blieb weitere vier Jahrzehnte unabhängig und wurde erst 1902 von der GER übernommen. Wie bei der Partnergesellschaft ECR waren die Gleise der N&ER zunächst mit einer Spurweite von fünf Fuß (1524 mm) verlegt worden. Im September und Oktober 1844 erfolgte die Umspurung auf die Normalspur von 4 Fuß und 8½ Zoll (1435 mm) (de)
  • The Northern & Eastern Railway was an early British railway company, that planned to build a line from London to York.

It was always short of money, and it got access to London over the Eastern Counties Railway. It was built at the track gauge of five feet, but it converted to standard gauge in 1844. Its main line opened progressively from 1840 to 1842. It was worked by the neighbouring Eastern Counties Railway, and it leased its network to that company in from the beginning of 1844 for 999 years. From that time it was a financial company only, it amalgamated with the Great Eastern Railway in 1902. The entire network is still in use and electrified, and part of the original main line now forms a section of the main line between London (Liverpool Street) and Cambridge. (en)
