The second book in this series looks at the fascinating world of London's Underground. For many of the four million passengers who use the 'tube' each day, it's a routine journey and much of the history, architecture and operations are missed. Book Two takes the reader on a pictorial trip around the network, not only looking at the trains, but the fascinating landscapes and infrastructure they run through. Whether surface stock, or tube stock, many aspects of the Underground's unseen world are featured here.
Included within the 100 pages are features on the soon-to-be-replaced D stock and the new S stock in service and being delivered. Highlight of the book is coverage of the rarely seen and rarely photographed Rail Adhesion and Track Recording trains as well as Battery locomotives on engineering duties.
There are features on the 1972 Stock (Bakerloo); 1973 Stock (Piccadilly); 1992 Stock (Central and Waterloo & City); 1995 Stock (Northern); 1996 Stock (Jubilee); 2009 Stock (Victoria) and the book ends with a peek into the archives.
Once again the images are presented in large format - usually one per page - accompanied by detailed captions. If you're interested in the current London Underground scene, this book is a must for you.
