North Woolwich Old Station Museum

The North Woolwich Old Station Museum was a small railway museum in Newham, east London. It was housed in what was the original Great Eastern Railway terminal station building at North Woolwich railway station. The building was in use as a ticket office until 1979 when it was replaced by a more austere building on the one remaining platform. It was derelict for many years until its opening as a museum by the Queen Mother on 20 November 1984. The line was electrified in 1985 when it became part of the North London Line but closed on 9 December 2006. The building was also used for some local community functions.
