I grew up in London and used to go to London Zoo a lot. There is no way that wolf cage in the film was in London Zoo. The "Wolf Wood" as it was called at the time looked completely different. I'm sure it was a studio set.

Well according to the book, it is actually in the Zoo. Again, it may not be true, but it definitely says that the character runs past a zoo bench. I don't know if that is the scene you mean.

Perhaps the 'external' scenes were filmed on location, but I knew the zoo like the back of my hand, and the bit where he woke up in the 'wolf cage' is a set. Anyway, going off topic here!

I like the new rolling stock on the Victoria line, it looks modern, fast and better than the previous one... I also like the voice used on it, it definitely makes it more comfortable!

These are some photos I took of the tube. I'm afraid they are not as amazing as all the photos I have seen in this thread. I think this is one of the threads with the best visual content os SSC. Anyway, hope you like them:

Yeah, that's right. It actually is.
Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, they were made with a quite old cam, I've just bought a new one.

The automatic doors can be found at every station on the Jubilee line extension that opened in the mid-1990s.

Good pics davo

I really like Westminster station, the complex structural supports because of the Portcullis House above.
