Mapping the Crystal Palace High Level Railway

Post by videosoul » 30 Apr 2019 14:16

I took it upon myself to accurately map the old Crystal Palace High Level railway line onto Google Maps. I wanted to make the route as accurate as possible, and also included sidings, platforms, and station buildings.

I went a step further and added as many photos and reference documents to the maps as I could, and pinned the photos to (as closely as possible) the exact spot the photographer would have been standing in when the photo was taken.

Please read the blog post and check out the map here!

The link to the map with the route and photos is on this blog post.

Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. I hope you enjoy browsing... there are A LOT of photos!
