Bexley, Crayford Lee and Mottingham railways stations opened in 1866
Southeastern has celebrated a milestone with local MPs as four of its stations turn 150.
Stations along the Sidcup line including Bexley, Crayford and Mottingham were all officially opened in 1866.
To celebrate, James Brokenshire and David Evennett visited their constituency’s respective stations for a special event.
James Brokenshire said: “Bexley station has been an important part of the development of the local area.
“With 150 years of service to Bexley Village, it is right to mark this piece of local history.
“At the same time as looking back, we also need to look forward to see that passengers passing through Bexley station receive improvements to their journeys.”
Southeastern also plan to mark the 150th Anniversary of Sidcup station later this year
