London's Local Railways - Alan A. Jackson

David & Charles, 1984, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ a little stained on inside edges otherwise a very well presented copy.

The backwaters of our railway system, past and present, exercise a strong fascination, posing many questions as to their origins and former use. Until now the byways of London's intricate railway net- work have not received the close attention that their interest deserves. This work, by a leading authority on the transport and social history of modern London, sets out to survey them in detail, paying due regard to their impact and environment and not forgetting their atmosphere and character. Almost 50 lines of varying type and importance are described, ranging from lines once busy with commuter traffic in North and East London to quiet little branches right in the heart of such residential areas as Acton and Hammersmith. 384pp. Index. Bibliography. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
