BTW, this is only my impression, and I've only seen videos of LU, so my opinion may be a little misleaded.

I've seen washing machines with wider openings
Tube stock is designed for a specific line so doubt 2009 stock will be seen on other lines anytime soon or in the future.

I can't imagine, too

Pretty strange, since my family had been there, many friends did, and I travel quite a lot within Europe. In the last 5 years I've been in Berlin at least once every summer.

I am both a big cities and a transport fan, and I truly go crazy when it comes to cities with a mixture of ancient and modern, and with lots of transport tricks and secrets hidden in history. London is just the centre of the world.

This year it will be Berlin again, for work (InnoTrans) and some good urban and transit cruising; then, next year, it will be London... and I know I'll never want to get back home

I've been to London once when I was almost too young to remember, but since then first time I visited the city was when I arrived 2 years ago. I've fell in love with it ever since.

3) Future replacements should take advantage of more recent technology, that's how it tends to work in London (for instance, why were the Jubilee/Northern stock replaced with the 95/96TS instead of just the 92TS?)
What's the line with the biggest demand for longer trains?

Even though the Art Deco stations from the 1920s and 1930s are really my favourites, they're the most charistmatic in my opinion.

The ticket hall of Piccadilly Circus is a good example.

Arnos Grove is the most widely known example.



In other news, a new platform on the Central line at Stratford opened a few days ago, I'll do a write up ASAP.

Is that the platform that allows passengers to leave the trains on both sides to better manage the flow during rush hours?

Yeah, it's working really well as one side is convenient for certain lines, the other for other interchanges. So the crowd is spread and split up quite nicely.
