LBUT2#randomtimetablemonday – London Bus and Underground Timetables


Second Edition, 1873 – 2016

First of all, the formalities – before I had a chance to buy a copy of this book, I was sent a complimentary copy. This is not a sponsored blog.

Now… this is the second edition of a book that grows and grows. It includes all of our timetables from the start until April 2016.

The book brings back memories of working and living in London from 1999-2002ish, and also more recent books from the areas I often travel to now. The book isn’t just London, but includes full coverage of the adjacent counties and boroughs too.

There’s just about everything here – from other independent and enthusiast groups, old style LT/LCBS monthly Local Bus and Rail Timetables, to the 1873 Metropolitan Railway timetable – the earliest in this book I can find.

The book is certainly useful for me trying to play catch-up afterwards, as well as being able to look back through everything.

But, that’s still not enough for former TLB publicity columnist John Bull, as he’s already planning a further update to the second edition!
