    I found the premise of this book very intriguing Living near DC and taking the metro with its big cut and cover vaulted stations fairly frequently the idea that a subway system could just decide that a station should no longer be used kind of blows my mind Reading this and learning that were a whole lot of stations that are no longer used blew it even At the same time it's very dry I wanted something that read a little history book and less factual recitation of things like the number of lifts or the grade the trains had to climb I'd of rather had pictures and less of the details if those were all the details available If you're interested in the subject buy this book to flip through not necessarily to read And if anyone has suggestions for a good overall book on London Underground history this book has made me want to read something like that even
