Walking the lines

A few years ago I read a book by Mark Mason "Walking the lines" in which he walked the route of the London Underground lines, overground. I will repeat this visiting all 270 stations (some more than once). My route tries to follow the line of the railway as closely as possible, using footpaths and roads.
