Does anyone know of a map of London rail routes that shows stations at a
distance from the centre based on their typical direct rail journey
time?

I think there's something like this at the London Transport Museum.


Found this the other day, is it the sort of thing you're after?

I am fond of that map and it probably answers the OP's question to some
extent. But the one at the Transport Museum actually does the distances
based on time rather than distance.

It brings up a question, though--why are there so many DLR stations at
Canary Wharf so close together? It appears that West India Quay-Canary
Wharf DLR are closer to each other than Leicester Square-Covent Garden! It
is a pretty short ride.


I believe that when the DLR was built, several of the stations were on
islands and inaccessible from each other on foot.
