London Euston

London Euston is a Central London railway terminus in the London Borough of Camden. Euston was the first inter city railway station to be built in London. The station was first opened on 20th July 1837 constructed by William Cubitt. Until 1844, trains were pulled up the incline to Camden Town by cables because the London and Birmingham Railway's Act of Parliament prohibited the use of locomotives in the Euston area; this prohibition is said to have been at the request of Lord Southampton, who owned land bordering this section of the line.
