Liverpool Street Station was constructed in 1874. In the 1970s British Rail suggested a number of redevelopment schemes to renovate and update the station. After a public enquiry, redevelopment work began in 1986.
Broad Street Station was built in 1865 as the terminus of the North London Railway. It was closed in 1984 and the Broadgate office development, which covers platforms 11-18 of Liverpool Street Station, was constructed in its place.
Blackfriars Station was opened as St Paul's Station in 1886 by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway; the name was changed in 1937. The District line station of the same name was opened across the road in 1870. The station was rebuilt in 1977.
