Since the beginnings of the railways, the network of railway lines that serve London grew to become the most complex in Britain. Nevertheless, in the modern era the railway lines of London are far fewer than in the heyday of the railway industry. Using the 'Railway Clearing House' maps of London published in 1921 as their starting point, some 45 facsimile 'Then' maps and re-drawn contemporary 'Now' maps graphically illustrate how the network has developed and shifted to deal with the demands of the ever-growing London population and changes in passenger traffic and freight movements. The colour maps also highlight the lost lines and stations which have disappeared from London in the 95 years since the 1921 maps were drawn. These maps are supported with historic and contemporary photographs, memorabilia and a comprehensive gazetteer.
