Books about the subway

Recommended Posts

So, I'm interested in knowing which books would you recommend on the subway. I am interested in books which deal with the history of the subway and the technical developments, are pleasant to read and, of course, factually correct.

The only book I have is the Evolutions of the NYC Subway, which is pretty much from the 90s. The highest current fleet in the book, is the R142 prototype.

 

I believe this became the successor of that book:

(Links to others can be found inside)

 

There is also another one called "Tracks of NYC Subway".

 

If none helps, you can Google it.

I enjoy Subways of the World by Stan Fischler. There's a section on the NY Subway with some nice color photos of various stock and lines.

 

It's also good if you're interested in other subway systems aswell.
