J.L. WILKINSON, General Manager. 1896

The first Great Western Railway to get to Aylesbury took a long route to get to London (Paddington) through Princes Risborough, High Wycombe, Bourne End and Maidenhead. Later in 1892, a shorter route to London was finished. This railway went through Wendover, Great Missenden, Amersham, Rickmansworth and Harrow. In 1899 all the work at Aylesbury was finally finished. The line was very expensive, costing £350,000 for the Rickmansworth to Aylesbury part.
