London's railway lines mapped
A new depiction of London's railway lines is an original, digitally-rendered design that takes its inspiration from vintage maps.
Created by freelance illustrator Mike Hall, the map features all surface and subsurface lines and stations, as well as fine detail such as maintenance depots and new lines under construction. It's a rail geek's dream.
Commuter and non-passenger routes are illustrated including tube lines, the DLR and Overground.
Croydon's very own Tram network and the now closed route from Blackhorse Lane to Addiscombe (better known as Addiscombe Railway Park) are also shown.
Routes are laid out geographically, in contrast to the more familiar tube-style schematic approach made famous by Harry Beck. The results are beautiful.
The Greater London Railway Map is a brilliant representation of London's sprawling railway network, both old and new. It's detailed enough to deserve close and lengthy inspection yet stylish enough to hang on your wall as a beautiful print. Railway nerds rejoice.
You can purchase an A1 print of the Greater London Railway Map via Mike's website. The site lets you zoom in and inspect the map in all its glory. And whilst you're there, take a look at Mike's other maps and illustrations.
