5.0 out of 5 stars Power Adaptor does what it says, 29 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It does what it should - what else can I say about a power adaptor in fifteen words or more

The latest version includes Heritage Railways and has more large scale maps, especially around London. Now all it needs is all London Transport tracks

The history of map making was well researched and well-presented. Embedding world events in the history was novel and worked well

5.0 out of 5 stars A novel way to express 90 years of change, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just when you thought there was no new angle for books on historical railway maps, up pops this book - to show the lines in each area of the country as they are now and how they appeared in 1923 is truly inspirational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, 28 Jan. 2013

I loved the first and second editions but the expansion to A4 size was inspirational. So much historical information contained with such clarity. A true masterpiece. I just love browsing through it.

I've nothing against the book as such - well-written and informative, but its so small, it's hard to see who it is written for

London's Overground

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London's Overground (Hardcover)
Just what you'd expect from the author of "London Underground" - interesting, detailed and informative. This book not only covers the current Overground but the history of the lines that existed beforehand.

My only gripe - the only map of the Overground is hidden on page 70 and is only half a page. I would have expected a full page map. And a map showing its interaction with other lines on Network Rail would have been a good addition. Something for the second edition, now that the Clapham Junction branch is open.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound with small footprint, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just the two speakers - no giant box required. Tall and slim so the footprint is small - vital on a busy desk,

Sound quality is really good too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, informative and interesting, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got countless books on the London Underground but this is a welcome addition. It is well-written and informative - what you'd expect from these authors.

The scope of the book is far-ranging from the underground's beginnings to the present, covering the people behind the various lines and the impact they had on the population.

As always, you want more information but there's an excellent "Further Reading" section to compensate.

This book should appeal to all but the most knowledgeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound at a reasonable price, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound quality is really good for such a compact and elegant-looking product. I don't use my HiFi anymore, freeing up more space.
