Once upon a time, Bomb-a-dear manufactured subway stock inherently free of the squealing brake syndrome ... that obsolescence of theirs is at least ten years old now

i don't really like the london underground because it is way too extensive and expensive.

i think it is the oldest and second largest subway system in the world but if i had a choice i'd rather drive my own car than taking the tube.

The Tube and Crossrail have different purposes.

If you are from North America, it isn't surprising that you would choose the car. But I bet a car is not a good option in London. I remember reading a survey that said Londoners were the biggest users of public transportation in Britain.

Cycling Sundays was often quicker than driving back in the '70s ...

Are there just six episodes to that BBC series?

Is the Congestion Charge to blame for the tube's overcrowding?

Naturally, London IS the biggest city.
