About The Author

Reiss O' Neill is a lifelong enthusiast who has worked in the bus industry on the New Routemaster, and now has a career in the railway industry, with a special interest in London and its urban rapid transit system. He has been recording the Underground, mainline trains and bus services, for the last twenty years, with his camera, covering the whole network across the capital. Reiss was introduced to his interest in transport, by his late Grandmother, who would often tell story's of her travelling on her sisters bus, during the blitz in Glasgow, and his late Grandfather, a London bus driver, who came to the capital from Barbados in the 1950's to work for London Transport. Today's London Underground is the culmination of many years of knowledge and diligent research, resulting in a book on the contemporary London system.
