The historic route to Blackwall, which became relegated to a branch line, is the first to be explored. Its curious branch to the dishonestly named North Greenwich terminus is examined in detail, as is Bow Road. The North London Railway's Poplar Branch from Dalston Junction is covered fully in the final section of this fascinating volume.
