Yeah, I used it daily decades ago, so much I'm certain passengers over there behave better than their Montreal counterparts (best-behaving in its country, mind you). Hardnuts are far too easy to spot over there, while literally zillions mask themselves in gallic yankeeland.

Hardnuts => yobbos, thugs, hooligans, troublemakers, etc.

(How come I'm certain that that Metro article lodged a few messages above must've been written by some North American?)

I was in London mid August for a few days.

rode the Tube all over.. Metropolitan, Piccadilly, District, Jubilee Lines in a day.

What an awesome network. I'm going into transportation planning for school, and absolutely loved almost every aspect. So much charm. the new Jubilee extension through Westminster and Waterloo was incredible (considering just how deep you are underground)

Riding it was one of my major highlights of visiting London.

Glad you enjoyed it

Even though Londoners love nothing more than to slag it off, I think its awesome too... especially the manager of Elephant & Castle Depot, he's great!

It was one of my highlights as well, when I visited London But I didn't have that much time so I just rode through the circle line.

You may have seen these images before, but for those who haven't take a look, although I have added some brand new images.

I've spend 150+ hours underground on this project!!

The disused public tunnels at Euston are cool.

Enjoy!

Thanks, the DLR is the next project. Traveled to Bank to get some tunnel shot from the front of the train but DLR was closed today. Never mind.

The addition of the 'London Overground' has turned a map that was famous for it's clarity into a tangarine mess.
