The ninth edition of a history of the world’s oldest metro, first written by Henry Howson and published in the 1950s, brings the story up to date with completion of the Jubilee Line Extension into London’s former docklands. It closes with the launch of yet another reorganisation that will see management of the infrastructure and trains privatised on a concession basis, as control of the Underground shuttles once more between central government and municipal bodies.
