Ever wondered what those bare patches of land are next to a railway line in the London area? Well this book covers many of the lost railways and railway sites that once covered London, from the busy mainline railway terminals with their goods yards to the quiet west London lines to Staines, Rickmansworth and Uxbridge. Underground fans can read about the Aldwych branch and King William Street along with a few other closed tube stations. Also find out what existed in the Croydon Tramlink area before it arrived.
This book will make any railway enthusiast want to get out and look for these interesting sites that, in many cases, are largely intact albeit without track or without buildings. There's a lot of disused railway land out there in the London suburbs that may not be there for much longer if development of land carries on as it is now. Artefacts are still out there to be found (i found a shed full of perfect Underground conductor rail insulators at North Weald station!).

An interesting book about the lost lines of London, I would have preferred more informative maps instead of the small ones used hence a mark of 4 not 5.

Theres a good selection of railway lines in this book. Some I was aware of, some I wasn't.
A good read and it leaves you wanting to find out more!
