My first experience about London under ground trains or popularly known as tube was of impressive. London is known for tube network world wide and when you go into tube it not let you down. It is fast (or super fast in off peak hours), very frequent and connecting most of destination of London through their colorful lines. Initially I travelled to move around in London so most of time it was off peak travel. I must say in weekdays of off peak hours it is less populated, more clean and comfortable. But when I started travelling through tube in zone 1 to 3 of London I realized some of loopholes. In peak hours in morning specially, trains are full and pack (reminds me the mumbai local trains), not clean upto the standard, struck in between due to signal failure and so not as fast as expected. But looking overall it is good option to travel over bus, safe, frequent, covers many destination. It is real identity of London
The London Undergroundis a public metro system serving a large part of Greater London and ... more
parts of the surrounding counties. The system serves 270 stations and has 402 kilometres (250 mi) of track, 55 per cent of which is above ground. The network has expanded to 11 lines, and in 2012/13 carried over 1 billion passengers. The systemâ€™s first tunnels were built just below the surface using the cut and cover method. Later, circular tunnels â€“which give rise to its nickname the Tube â€“were dug through the London Clay at a deeper level. The early lines were marketed as the UNDERGROUND in the early 20th century on maps and signs at central London stations. Today in official publicity and in general, the term â€˜Tubeâ€™ embraces the whole Underground system, not just the lines that run in deep-level tunnels. This fascinating jigsaw puzzle combines illustrations from the Haynes Manual with detailed close-ups and facts about the London Underground making it perfect for transport enthusiasts and puzzlers of all ages.
