Doesn't do what it says on the tin...
on 7 November 2014
This is a disappointing book and doesn't fit its description as a rolling stock guide. Rather than giving a full and systematic description of all the current stock with pictures to identify different types, it has very short histories of each of the Underground lines followed with a listing of the rolling stock. There aren't as many pictures as I would have expected and there aren't even photos of all London Underground Stock. Apart from their numbers, you won't learn anything about the rolling stock or learn how to identify different types of stock.
This is a very insubstantial book and isn't really fit for purpose.
If all you want is a list of all the rolling stock and the formations, this is the book for you. If not, I'd suggest that you buy another book.
