Book reviews — April 1988

THE CENTRAL LINE, A Short History. By M.A.C. Home
Price 2.95 plus 45p postage from: Nebulous Books, 12 Raven Square, Alton, Hants. GU34 2LL
This is a new book of 56 pages which has just been published by Douglas Rose and distributed by Nebulous Books. It tells the history of the longest continuous Underground journey from Epping to West Ruislip of 34.1 miles. Its connection with the Eastern Counties Railway, which opened between Loughton and Leyton in 1056, is traced from that time to the present day. A good read, with photographs. CHARLIE THURSTON
