Nick Catford's definitive and ever-expanding site of the UK's disused stations.
Some great evocative photos of the Northern Heights line as it was in 1970. From the lens of Peter Wright. (Peter also corrected the erroneous code on this site's index page - twice!).
"Disused stations, abandoned railways, old buildings and railway walks - we love 'em!" - Urban 75's interesting site.
Much of interest on this site, not just tube related material.
The Buckingham Railway Centre, based at the old Quainton Road station, has lovingly restored the station to that of an authentic 1930s Metropolitan Line station, as well as being home to a multitude of steam and other locomotives. Well worth a visit.
Abandoned Scotland, including some railway material.
Hywel Williams' disused tube stations site. Curiously compliments this site in that it covers the few stations not featured here.
London Reconnections - up to date site for public transport projects in London.
Nick Catford's excellent photographs of Wood Lane station. There are also great shots of the Camden Catacombs and other subterrania.
The official site of the Epping to Ongar Railway company.
Dr. James Fox has some good photos of Brompton Road on this site.
An honourable mention for a site adding a welcome dose of irreverent humour to the underground. Curiously part of the BBC's website.
Cornwall has its fair share of disused railways. Chris Sawle's site provides a good chronicle of them.
Fairly nationwide coverage of disused railways.
London had the world's first underground railways and consequently also led the way in initial planning errors, which led to so many of its stations being closed. Nice to know then that other cities are not immune. This site features the disused stations in Toronto.
Another thing that is good to know is that people worldwide are documenting the loss of railways. This site is for Connecticut's Central New England Railroad.

Marvellous account of an ongoing attempt to be photographed at every London station, or to quote: "A Tube traveller exploring the network's artistry, design and architecture."   Highly recommended for the descriptive and entertainingly quirky narrative.
It is perhaps hard to believe that artistic photos of the highest quality could be taken of a subject as unpromising as the underground. Graham Goldwater has done it though.
Site with general railway photos spanning a few decades. Some Broad Street ones dating from 1970 in there somewhere.
