The Underground network in London has always held a fascination for historians and transport enthusiasts, from the early days of the steam operated system in the 1860s. Today's London Underground covers the network as it is today, with features on the different lines across the capital and the modern day rolling stock in use, which serve London. The book covers all aspects of operation in pictures and text, with features on depots, stations, infrastructure and servicing facilities.

"The images are well reproduced with a central spine margin and binding style allowing for comfortable reading...one I can recommend."

John New, The Stephenson Locomotive Society Journal, March/April 2022

Mostly pictures with extended captions of today’s London underground at a time when it is going through major updates and changes. Quite a range of topics though mostly stations and trains, even tailended by pictures of the Underground’s emergency road vehicles. One wonders at pictures of the different types of station signs. At times this is a bit “samey” but it can evoke nostalgia in us exiles from The Smoke, only the unique smell of the deep level tubes is missing. A useful record and some good detail for the small but committed band who like to model the Underground.

This photographic volume looks at the modernisation of London's Underground network and focusses on 2007 until the present day. It takes a line by line approache at different stations, showing the history of the lines as well as the old and new stock in this change-over period seeing the likes of A, C and D stock withdrawn and S stock introduced. The photos are of a high quality, with useful information about each location shown. Those interested in London Underground or intending to model it in the current era will find it a useful reference.

Reiss O'Neill has spent many years taking photographs, researching and recording information of the whole London Underground system which will be of great interest to even the remotely interested enthusiasts. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to know more.

Peter A. Harding, Branch Line & Light Railway Publications

There are all sorts of snippets of information you might not know – what is the steepest section on the Underground, what station is at the highest altitude and where can you find an Egyptian Mummy mural?

Those interested in the sights and sounds of London’s Underground should find this book noteworthy and just appreciate how much the Underground has changed in 15 years.

You have to be careful when you give a book a title as it soon becomes out of date. This is still a good book though. When compiling a photographic volume like this it’s very difficult to decide what to leave out. Having said that it is worth adding to your collection
