It is another well researched and authoritative guide on British Rail transport. He leaves no stone unturned in his research of engineering and politics in the planning and development of what is today the first and one of the most complex underground rail systems in the world.
I love the Underground and this was a "must read" for me.
I appreciate not everyone like this sort of stuff - not a thriller but a well-constructed history with lovely anecdotes.
