Description

The London Underground, or Tube, is an icon: it is the world’s oldest underground rail network and remains one of its largest and busiest. The Haynes London Underground Owners' Workshop Manual provides a detailed insight into its design, construction, operation and maintenance, featuring fascinating photographs and drawings from the archives along with essential technical details and an engaging narrative. Lively presentation and an abundance of colour imagery make this book an essential read for all enthusiasts of the Underground, railways and, indeed, historic London.



About the Author

Paul Moss studied Industrial Design at the Central School of Art and Design under Douglas Scott, designer/stylist of the fabled RM Routemaster and RF class buses. He worked as a designer in manufacturing for 26 years before joining London Underground as Design Manager. Subsequently he worked on rolling stock design in Hong Kong and ran design workshops for the British Council in Brazil and Croatia. He also taught Design and Technology and was a lecturer on the post-graduate Imperial College/RCA Industrial Design course. He is the author of Underground Movement (Capital Transport, 2000), which is considered the definitive work on the trains of the London Underground.
