Metropolitan Railway Rolling Stock


The Metropolitan Railway served a sizeable area of countryside to the north-west of London, extending out into the depths of Buckinghamshire, As a result, it developed not only passenger services, both suburban and and long-distance, but also a thriving goods traffic, for which it developed a wide range f wagons, This study charts the development of the Metropolitan's rolling stock from its beginnings in 1863 through to its absorption into the London Transport Passenger Board in 1933, when swampted by the interests of the Underground group, its independent character was effectively stifled. It was not long before its non-passenger interests were handed over, along with much of the freight stock and the locomotive fleet, to the control of the London & North Eastern Railway, with whom , as successors to the Great Central Railway, the Metropolitan co-existed. Softcover, 172 pages, 175 b/w illustrations, 61 drawings.
