IMO it accentuates the shape of the tight tunnels and also reminds me a little bit of the classic London Underground roundel. Should those aspects be enhanced it'd become a great front design. Not sure about the sides tho.

Pretty sure the reason Bank's so 'hated' is the endless miles of walking tunnels to transfer between platforms, rather than anything to do with the platforms themselves. The curve of that platform is quite common on the Central line - unlike other deep tube lines, it follows the routes of streets above.

Canary Wharf on the other hand is just an epic underground cathedral of a station.

True, although that curve on the Central Line makes Bank (westbound) the loudest station on the entire network.

That and it's hell during the rush hour. I use to commute to Angel from south east London everyday, and Bank station was always the 'liveliest'.

Surprised to see KXSTP as a hated one.
Canary Wharf is simply fantastic.

Part of Banks problem is the W&C line that takes pretty much every commuter from the Wessex region and dumps them in Bank

Wasn't there a plan at one stage to whack on an intermediate stop where that passes under Embankment? Or Barbican... I forget which station it was. That struck me as a good plan.

My personal proposal would be to tie the DLR and the Waterloo and City together. Convert the W&C to DLR operation and transfer the current stock to the Northern Line.

I believe the angle of the platforms at Bank make connecting the two impossible without rebuilding a large part of the station and tunnels to and from it

apaart from the complete wrong direction of the DLR and the W&C, the gauge of the W&C won't be able to take the DLR trains, so you would need to retunnel the W&C completely, so this will largerly be the price of a new line.

And knowing that the W&C is almost at capacity, it is very hard to extend it without creating to much problems on the new line. So most metro experts are convinced that the only feasible (in money and capacity terms) to do with the W&C is to leave it this way....

This has been discussed before; even adding an interchange at Blackfriars would probably overload it.

It is clearly a very useful route however and a much longer tube line that follows that route with a Blackfriars interchange could well be useful, retaining the W&C as a rush hour shuttle. Perhaps said line could tie in with the Northern City Line, running into a new deeper level Moorgate and continue on to the 'Northern Heights' line to Highgate providing an alternative to the Northern Line to the City from the north which is pretty rammed at rush hour. Going the other way it could run to Victoria and Chelsea enabling CR2 to run direct from Vic to CJ thence on to Roehampton which is an entire suburb with no stations. Anyway, just an idea...

Bank felt like a deep bored maze. Pretty cool, but I'd utterly hate to use it every morning!


Looks like some kid of living organ.

Just found this tool, very helpful for finding your way about the more complicated tube stations:
