Urban Rail in the British Capital
Underground - Overground - Docklands Light Railway - Trams - National Rail
The British capital has much more to offer urban rail enthusiasts than just the world-famous ‘Underground’ or ‘Tube’. There is also the ‘Overground’ which provides an S-Bahn-style service. It is complemented by a series of radial suburban lines, some of which will soon be part of the ‘Elizabeth Line’ (Crossrail). In addition, there is the driverless ‘Docklands Light Railway’ as well as a tram system that serves Croydon in South London. London-based author Andrew Phipps presents every means of urban rail transport, giving an overview of the respective history of each system and the vehicles used. At the end of the book, the reader will find detailed maps of the entire Greater London area, which is home to some nine million people.
