     London Road station on the Great Northern, later LNER, branch line from Hatfield to St Albans, where it joined with the LNWR branch line; opened in 1865. The branch from Hatfield closed to passengers in September 1951, and completely to goods in 1968. By 1986 the line had been converted to a footpath and cycleway called 'The Alban Way'.

     Remaining traces of the line linking the LNWR Watford-St Albans Abbey branch to bring in materials for the construction of the Midland Railway line in the 1860s. Closed shortly after the MR line was completed, and never used for passenger trains.

     Railway line curving away to reach St Albans City station - the Midland Railway was originally planning to go in a straighter line further from the St Albans city centre, but was persuaded by the 'city Fathers' to divert to a position closer to the city centre than the MR's original plans.

     Napsbury Station, opened 1905 to serve the nearby Middlesex Mental Hospital; the station was closed in 1959 when local services were taken over by DMUs from steam-hauled services. There was only an island platform serving the slow lines.

    This airfield is the centre of a controversial planning decision, by central government, to allow the construction of a 'Railfreight Terminal' connected to the Midland Main line, but without a connection to the nearby M25.
