About This Book

Nowhere in the UK is the railway history of a particular location so complex and convoluted as that related to the London area. Few writers have ever successfully unravelled the story of construction, opposition, duplication, expansion and even at times closure that has occurred within the City and its environs. Of those who have succeeded, the names John Glover and Alan Jackson will come to the fore and now a mix of the knowledge of one with the images of the other presents a new look. This book covers the history of many of the routes both surface and sub-surface and their place either in history or within the modern day transport infrastructure of the Capital. This compilation will bring memories to some as well as encouraging others to explore for themselves.
