LIVERPOOL STREET RAILWAY STATION is the terminus of the Great Eastern Railway, and is now one of the largest railway stations in England. It has its main entrance in Liverpool Street, and another entrance for the East suburban trains in Bishopsgate Street. It is a handsome station, with 18 platforms. The arrival and departure of the Continental trains, in connection with the new loop line of the Hook of Holland, cause enormously increased traffic.
