  1. Coburn Road L.N.E.R. station was destroyed by a Doodlebug (V1) in 1944, causing the
    trains to terminate and us struggling to complete the journey as best we might

  2. incognito is incorrect. The 1944 V1 destroyed the bridge over Grove Road. Coborn Road station was not affected, although its Grove Road entrance may have closed. The station eventually closed in 1946, being effectively replaced by Mile End Central Line.
