This review is from: London's Overground (Hardcover)
A thorough and very interesting story of London's Overground. A blow by blow account of all the component parts and their development and everyday running, including historic background. There are plenty of photo's, mainly in colour, and some early track plans. There is however no real map showing it's position in the scheme of things. Very well worth getting. One particular point of interest to me was where BR did put forward partial schemes during their tenure. Of course, like so many of their great ideas it was not taken seriously as far as investment went. The book ends with a thought on where the future lies. It would be interesting to reread it in say ten years and to compare what the author says with what actually happened.
