** About the London Railway Plan

Today's traveler to London is very familiar with the Underground Diagram (see map at right).  This Diagram debuted in the 1930s and was based on a design by Harry Beck, a junior draftsman working for the Underground.  Beck was looking for a different approach to mapping the railways using an easy-to-follow diagrammatic method based on straight lines.  The Diagram was an immediate hit with the riding public, and as they say, "the rest was history".

The Railway Plan dating to 1908 presented here was the predecessor to Beck's Diagram.  It presents the routes for both the Underground and commuter rail lines servicing the areas surrounding London.
