Does anyone know of a map of London rail routes that shows stations at a

time?


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

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.

That's not a reason to build three stations, it's a reason to build the DLR
bridge a little wider and put a walkway(s) along it.

I think the multiple stations are to prevent extended dwell time at Canary
Wharf from destroying the capacity of the entire network, but I've never
seen this confirmed.

I wouldn't have thought so - the Olympia & York development at Canary
Wharf wasn't on the cards until after DLR construction had started.
Canary Wharf station was originally built to the same size as all the
other tiny original DLR stations were, but it never opened like that.

They are built on the former docks so there are stretches of water
between each station. As there are few other bridges it's quite handy
that DLR serves each individual dock. You should still be able to see
some of the water, but as the area gets more developed it is slowly
vanishing.

Yes, that was what I'm after. I was hoping there was one on the web, but
looks like I'll need to go to the LT museum.
