About the Author
Paul Moss studied Industrial Design at the Central School of Art and Design under Douglas Scott, designer/stylist of the fabled RM Routemaster and RF class buses. He worked as a designer in manufacturing for 26 years before joining London Underground as Design Manager. Subsequently he worked on rolling stock design in Hong Kong and ran design workshops for the British Council in Brazil and Croatia. He also taught Design and Technology and was a lecturer on the post-graduate Imperial College/RCA Industrial Design course. He is the author of Underground Movement (Capital Transport, 2000), which is considered the definitive work on the trains of the London Underground.

There are some good parts, it has plenty of photographs and is bang up to date with mention of the Croxley Rail Link. If your into the history this is for you, but it's no Ian Allen book.
Perhaps the title is a little confusing calling it "Owners Workshop Manual", but with the Haynes experience of car manuals maybe it was to be expected.
Perhaps the author could be persuaded to review the London Bus story next, equally exciting, petrol electric busses over 90 years ago.
