Railway promotion in London reached a peak in 1863 prompting Parliament to intervene. This map, reproduced from a copy in the Bishopsgate Institute, shows at a scale of 2″ to the mile the proposals in that boom year and is taken from the General Report of the Board of Trade on the railway and canal bills of session 1863 (House of Commons Papers 1863, Vol LXII).
