Product description

This book is a pictorial survey of London Underground from the mid 1950s covering the gradual withdrawal of older prewar types of rolling stock - although the 1938 stock survived until the late 1980s - and the introduction of new types, along with the gradual transition from the traditional red livery to the unpainted aluminium that marked Underground stock from the early 1960s. This period also saw a significant extension of the network with the completion of the Victoria Line and the construction of the Jubilee Line in two stages as well as the extension of the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow. The book also includes sections on Underground architecture and stations, infrastructure and depots, locomotives steam and electric, engineer's locomotives and rolling stock and signage. This large format book contains over 200 colour images - the vast majority previously unpublished - with detailed captions alongside a brief introductory essay on the developments on the Underground network since 1955.
