Chapters: Crossrail, East London line extension, Feltham marshalling yard, London Overground, London station group, London Underground, Pouparts Junction, Snow Hill tunnel, Thameslink Programme. Excerpt: The London Underground (otherwise known as the Underground or the Tube) is a metro system serving a large part of Greater London and parts of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. The system serves 270 stations and has 402 kilometres (250 mi) of track, 45 per cent of which is underground. Since 2003 LUL has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL), the statutory corporation responsible for most aspects of the transport system in Greater London, which is run by a board and a commissioner appointed by the Mayor of London. As of 2012, 91 per cent of operational expenditure is covered by passenger fares. It incorporates the first underground railway in the world, which opened in 1863 and now forms part of the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, and the first line to operate underground electric trains, in 1890, now part of the Northern line. The first tunnels were built just below the surface; later circular tunnels (tubes) were dug through the London Clay. The Central London Railway was built this way and known as the "twopenny tube" when opened in 1900. The lines were marketed as the UNDERGROUND in the early 20th century on maps and signs outside central London stations. The private companies that owned and ran the railways were merged in 1933 to form the London Passenger Transport Board. The Victoria line was opened 1968-71 and the Jubilee line in 1979, and this was extended in 1999. The Travelcard was introduced in the mid 1980s and the Oyster card, an electronic ticketing system, in 2003. London Underground celebrated 150 years of operations on 9 January 2013. The system is currently...

The London Overground East London line presented an exciting opportunity, as structures were demolished and cleared for London's latest railway, to discover more about some of London's earliest railways, and the area's many and varied communities. This superbly illustrated book showcases the important discoveries made during archaeological and building investigations. Revealed were parts of one of the world's first operational passenger railways, the Eastern Counties, of 1840, which terminated at Bishopsgate, and the Braithwaite Viaduct, one of the earliest railway structures in London, incorporated in the Bishopsgate Goods Yard. Before the railway arrived, this part of Shoreditch had undergone a long transformation, from being on the periphery of Roman London to an 18th-century suburb, including on the way a medieval priory, a Tudor mansion, and brickearth quarrying and brickmaking.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 44. Chapters: Silverlink, East London Line, East London line extension, North London Line, Thames Tunnel, Gospel Oak to Barking Line, Watford DC Line, Inner South London Line, British Rail Class 172, British Rail Class 378, West London Line, North London Railway, Orbirail, Battersea Railway Bridge, London Overground Rail Operations, Kew Railway Bridge. Excerpt: London Overground (LO) is an urban rail service in London. It has been operated by London Overground Rail Operations since 2007 as part of the National Rail network, under the franchise control and branding of Transport for London (TfL). It consists of five lines: the East London Line; the Gospel Oak to Barking Line; the North London Line; the West London Line and the Watford DC Line. Rail services in Great Britain are mostly run on a system of rail franchises and operated by a number of private train operating companies, marketed together as National Rail. The London Underground, owned and run by TfL, is not part of this system. A pilot scheme was launched in 2003 to bring National Rail services operated by multiple companies under one branding umbrella within London. Using the Overground Network brand, TfL introduced consistent information displays, station signage and maps on selected routes in South London. Although this pilot was purely an exercise in branding, it was the first instance of TfL having a visible influence over National Rail services in London. The Overground Network pilot has since been withdrawn. In January 2004 the Department for Transport announced a review of the rail industry in the United Kingdom. As part of that review, proposals were put forward by Transport for London for a "London Regional Rail Authority" to be established, which would give TfL regulatory powers over rail services in and around Greater London. A result of this consultation...

Since the Victorian era, London's Underground has had played a vital role in the daily life of generations of Londoners. In The Subterranean Railway, Christian Wolmar celebrates the vision and determination of the nineteenth-century pioneers who made the world's first, and still the largest, underground passenger railway: one of the most impressive engineering achievements in history. From the early days of steam to electrification, via the Underground's contribution to twentieth-century industrial design and its role during two world wars, the story comes right up to the present with its sleek, driverless trains and the wrangles over the future of the system. The Subterranean Railway reveals London's hidden wonder in all its glory and shows how the railway beneath the streets helped create the city we know today.
