This review is from: Mind The Gap - London Underground Pictorial (Hardcover)
Mind The Gap is an interesting pictorial review of London Underground’s tube stock between 2008 and 2012, capturing the last months of the old trains and the sweeping advance of the new.

The colour photographs each occupy a whole page and the information describes when and where they were taken. Many of the pictures are of tube trains on the surface, either in or near stations, with a few taken in tube or sub-surface stations for good measure.

Whether intentional or not, what the book also does is to capture the visual effect of the changes to the system that the S Stock has had since it become (or will soon become) ubiquitous across the tube network… Obviously, as the same train stock in the same livery is in use on different lines, the pictures can appear repetitive, but for me it only served to highlight the loss of character and individuality that has befallen each line not they all use virtually the same trains. Despite the improved standards the new trains undoubtedly bring, the sameness of it all was a bit disheartening…

Nevertheless, the book is excellent and provides a reminder of the last remaining D, C and A stock still in service as well as a snapshot in time of the advance of the S Stock across the network.
