As for the articles above, if we are talking about tunnels then a leaky coax and base stations are all that is needed, no need for antenna's in the carriages. For something like the Eurostar, different matter, the better solution there (except the London tunnels) would be for a micro cell in each carriage.

Nice map!

The only thing I can think of is that Edgware Road is actually two separate stations. One for Circle/H&C/District Lines, and another station for the Bakerloo Line. Although they both have the same name are are really close to each other, they are completely different stations.

^this is true, but like Euston Square & Euston, I just wish they'd raise the funds and interchange the two!

Wonderful map! One can but dream!

Great map! Really well done. I think perhaps the Thameslink route should be shown as well, but it really is a fantastic map.

You shouldn't show both Watford and Watford Junction on the Met... It's either / or

Kennington looks a bit wrong because the Charing Cross line turns 'in the dot', so to speak, which is a bit confusing. Look at the Victoria at Green Park for example, where the turn is made right before the station/dot and the line is straight through the dot itself - that makes more sense and is how it works everywhere else on the map. Might be worth changing?

I think that, like with Watford, the old terminal in Beckton would also be removed if the line was extended to Dagenham.
Great map anyhow!

You've got two Hackney Centrals and no Hackney Wick

Gunnersbury instead of Queensbury

No Osterley

Ladbroke Grove & Westbourne Park wrong way around

Canonbury spelt wrong

Canons Park spelt wrong

Colliers Wood spelt wrong

Met line to Watford Junction also serves Watford High Street

Bounds Green shown with NwR interchange

I wouldn't show Dalston Kingsland & Junction as an interchange (they only are currently until the west curve is reinstated)

...Well you did ask!

Mill Hill is not on Northern Line B
Cross Rail stations in the centre appear unlabelled and don't indicate that they interchange with two tube stops.
You can't go straight through Gospel Oak from Barking - or is that intended to change in future?
Why the triangle on the Jubilee line?

Finally - Shouldn't this be in a different thread?

I would also make the same point about Paddington - the H&C (and Circle from Hammersmith) platforms are at the opposite end of the mainline station to those for the Bakerloo/District/Circle (via Notting Hill Gate).

I agree, though, it's a nice map.

Tubey,

What (if anything) was up with the Northern Line this morning!? Terrible!

The sooner it is split to two lines and upgraded the better - absolute nightmare!! Any update on when this work may occur?

Honestly don't know... Was more preoccupied with the one-under on the Bakerloo this afternoon!

As far as I was aware, on my way in this morning only the Circle / H&C were knackered... But that's all I care about when I'm trying to get to work!

a working link would be good - I can't actually find the photo, even when I go to the user page.
