Greater London Railway History
- A Regional History of the Railways of Great Britain
- Volume 3 - Greater London
- The influence on our capital city of the worlds most complicated railway network is the subject if this third volume in this region-by-region history of the railways.
- The development of Greater London from the London of the early nineteenth century is seen to be largely the result of lines spreading outwards from the centre, and H.P.White links the social and economic factors with railway history
- Defining London in an introductory chapter, he proceeds to deal with the different sectors making up the whole: the building of the southern termini and approach lines, the rivalry between separate companies, and the extensions across the inner suburbs and out beyond them.
- He also deals with Central London and the dominant role played by the tubes, and the policies of the Great Eastern which helped the earliest spread of the working class suburbs
- Much work has gone into updating and substantially revising this third edition which has been entirely reset.
