An exhibition is celebrating a century and a half of railways.

The display honours Elstree & Borehamwood Station and its importance in Borehamwood’s development.

“First Impressions” was officially opened by the Mayor of Hertsmere, Cllr Charles Goldstein, on January 22, at Borehamwood museum, at 96 Shenley Road.

The display has been modelled to replicate a station.

It was funded with the town, borough and county councils, as well as Thameslink, Elstree Screen Heritage and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Mayor said: “Having walked through the first panels, I was struck by how the railway completely transformed Borehamwood.”

The free exhibition is open four days a week, Tuesday-Thursday midday-6pm and on Saturday from 10am-3pm. It will run until the 21 July.

A number of related projects are also planned as part of “All Change” throughout 2018.
