Summary
Originally known as the Commercial Railway, the London & Blackwall was on of London's earliest and most distinctive lines. Stretching eastwards along a string of viaducts, it went from the City to Blackwall on the Thames. Worked by a rope haulage system initially, rather than conventional locomotives, it was built to a non-standard gauge - all the more surprising given the involvement of Robert Stephenson. The railway served a mixed clientele, with dock workers and seamen rubbing shoulders with the day-trippers and travellers connecting with vessels moored at Blackwall
